Former Marine Captain Dale Dye Brings Realism and Insight to War Stories

November 11, 2022

In recognition of Veterans Day, host Michael Azevedo chats with retired Marine Captain Dale Dye about his two-decade long military career and his pivot to helping add realism and accuracy to Hollywood war movies such as Platoon, Saving Private Ryan, Courage Under Fire, Thin Red Line, Forrest Gump, and Band of Brothers. 

A veteran of three tours in Vietnam, Dale Dye was a Marine correspondent awarded the Bronze Star for heroism in action. He’s equal parts storyteller, military historian and psychologist, and his performance prep goes where others fail to tread: into actors’ heads.
