Ep. 3: Thank You For Your Service

By  | 

In this latest episode of After Action, Max and Paul have a special guest on the show: Jason Hall.

Jason wrote the blockbuster hit film “American Sniper” starring Bradley Cooper, and most recently, wrote and directed “Thank You For Your Service,” a new film based on the true story of a group of soldiers after their return home from the 2007-2008 Iraq War surge.

Starring Miles Teller, “Thank You For Your Service” highlights the struggles of Sgt. Adam Schumann and how he second-guesses decisions he made in Iraq, along with a number of his fellow soldiers as they transition from war to home.

We talk about a lot more than just Jason’s new film. In this episode, we chat about Max’s undying love for Jurassic Park, Paul’s reasoning as to why Empire Strikes Back is the best Star Wars film, and Jason talks about his favorite military movies that apparently we were supposed to have watched but never did.

You can find Jason on Twitter and Instagram. You can find out more about his new film at its official website here.

    Thank you guys for sharing. Your experiences in war are somewhat different that what I went through. I alway feel, when someone says “Thank You For Your Service”, why are you saying this 50 years after I came back from Viet Nam?
    When I returned to CONUS from “in country” (two consecutive tours, with a month extension leave), I was just three days from the Nam. Not much decompression time. I arrived at Travis Airforce Base, with just enough cash to get to the Greyhound terminal in San Francisco. Here I was wearing my Trops walking through San Francisco, with people spitting on me. Thank You For Your Service would have been much better received back in 1968.
    Max, thank you for portraying the Green Weenie, for what it is. Some of the antics you share in Terminal Lance, easily resonate to this “Old Guy”, looking back. It never goes away. Sometimes I was there, just last night…
    Semper Fi, Tom, USMC 1965-1969
