SDP Episode 18: Captain Dale Dye

In this episode, Doc interviews Captain Dale Dye, USMC(Retired), a legend in both military and movie circles.   Captain Dale A. Dye, served 20 year sin the United States Marine Corps, rising from the rank of recruit private to Master Sergeant, before ultimately becoming a warrant officer, and finally a commissioned officer. He served multiple tours of combat in Vietnam, earning the Bronze Star with “V” for Valor, and three Purple Hearts for wound sustained in combat. He also saw action in Beirut Lebanon in the early 1980’s. Captain Dye came to Hollywood in 1985 with a vision in mind…to change how American civilians view the common grunt. Having been around infantrymen all his life and having been one himself, he knew that the majority are intelligent, creative, and full of heart…and the image of the dumb cannon-fodder blindly following orders not only was not true…but was a grave disservice to those brave servicemen who had risked and often gave their lives so that our nation could survive and prosper. So he looked for the best medium available to reach the hearts and minds of the public, and chose the film and television industry to spread his message.   Captain Dye’s current passion project is the film “No Better Place to Die”. This film will tell the incredible story of the three-day battle for the La Fiere bridge in Normandy, where brave soldiers from the US Army’s famed 82nd Airborne Division fought one of the most ferocious small-unit combats in US history. (See below for link to support this endeavor)   Tim Kennedy’s legend began at his local Army recruiter’s office on September 12th, 2001.
