The film director and writer joined the Army in April 1967, specifically requesting combat duty. He went to Vietnam, where he was wounded twice in action and was honorably discharged in November 1968. He received the Bronze Star with "V" device, which he received after conducting "extraordinary acts of courage under fire."
