    others and Hollywood folks he s worked with including Oliver Stone Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg Dye had this to say when asked what he considers his mission to be in Hollywood To correct misperceptions about the military and celebrate the courage devotion and sacrifice of the men and women who ve worn our uniform Now that doesn t make me a Kool Aid drinker or even a cheerleader I served 22 years in the United States Marine Corps I know when we screwed the pooch and don t mind talking about that That means if Oliver Stone wants to say Hey you know some of these draftees were smoking dope well that was a fact and I don t mind showing it I don t think that kind of scene denigrates the people who served But a director also has to show the other side of the picture in the same story The on line version contains an embedded video of a great scene in Private Ryan in which Dye plays the colonel who advises Gen George Marshall not to send Tom Hanks s men after young Ryan Comments Off on Dale Dye on War Movies Posted on September 22nd 2010 in Feature Films Comments are closed Contents Unsung Heroes Art Exhibit in Boston Bobbie Ann Mason Receives Kentucky Literary Honor Creative Writing Contest The Jeff Sharlet Memorial Award for Veterans Veterans in Politics radio The Photography of Muhammad Abdus Sabur in NYC New VN War Exhibit Opens at Army Heritage Center in Carlisle Pa New HBO Doc on Richard Holbrooke Jefferson Starship Free Concert in D C Nov 8 American Boys Wins Big Book Honor Eddie Adams Enduring Vietnam War Photos Children of the April Rain Play in D C Nov 10 The Draft New Vietnam War Play
