Borne the Battle #170: Dale Dye, Marine Corps Birthday Episode

Borne the Battle Podcast #170

When watching a movie, it’s easy to think that everything is real and true and lifelike. It’s no surprise that that isn’t always the case, especially with military movies. That’s how Marine Veteran Dale Dye got involved.

Dale Dye, Hollywood Legend talks Vietnam, post-military careers, and PTSD.



Happy Birthday Marines

93-year old World War II Marine Veteran and code talker Thomas Begay sings the U.S. Marine Corps hymn in Navajo.


Most Americans know the historic significance of the U.S. Marine Corps War Memorial in Arlington, Virginia, and the iconic image it is modeled after. Few, however, may know that the original, working model used by sculptor Dr. Felix W. de Weldon to create the monument is on display thousands of miles away in South Texas.
