Stars and Stripes interview Dale Dye

Executive Director Note: The Stars and Stripes writer of the article, “War-movie adviser looks to troops, vets to fund his directorial debut”  should not have been surprised at anything during this interview. I’ve known Dale Dye since he was a young lance corporal and nothing surprises me these days about what he is doing when most his age would be heading into a retirement home. He has a very long relationship with this organization both as an enlisted contributor and many times winner in our Distinguished Performance Awards program and as an extremely effective public affairs officer.

What he has accomplished in the film industry not only brought recognition to our Association but resulted in movie-goers seeing what they should see when watching a military movie. He demands perfection and gets it! We awarded him the Donald Dickson Memorial Award at our annual conference and training symposium last week in San Diego. This could be compared to the NFL’s most valuable player award. In 1997 our Board voted him the Brig. Gen. Robert L. Denig Memorial Distinguished Service Award for excellence as a practitioner of mass communications for his film work. He is, as the man once said, the real deal. We’re very lucky that he is one of ours.
