Join us for a special episode with actor and Navy brat, Lou Diamond Phillips the host of The Military Channel's AN OFFICER AND A MOVIE which Premieres FRI, APR 1 at 8pm ET. As each film makes its Military Channel premiere, host Lou Diamond Phillips will speak with retired and active duty officers who will reflect on the themes of that night's film and also provide personal insight that puts each movie into a modern context. “To have the opportunity to discuss the real-life events and strategies of the heroic efforts of service men and women from our nation’s history is something I will cherish,” said Lou Diamond Phillips. “In Military Channel’s AN OFFICER AND A MOVIE, I am honored to pick the brains of some of America’s heroes, who experienced first-hand the themes showcased in each week’s classic war film.” In the premiere episode on Friday, April 1 at 8 PM ET, Lou Diamond Phillips and retired Marine Col. Arthur Athens discuss the themes behind the 1979 classic film The Great Santini, starring Robert Duvall, who was nominated for an Academy Award for this role. -- As the director of the U.S. Naval Academy’s Vice Admiral James B. Stockdale Center for Ethical Leadership, the former Commandant of the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, Athens is uniquely able to comment on what it means to be a leader in the military and within a family’s home, where in his own life he has ten children. AN OFFICER AND A MOVIE will include Kelly’s Heroes, Hart’s War, Windtalkers, Three Kings, and The Dirty Dozen among others. After The Great Santini, the next three premieres are Heartbreak Ridge, Bridge at Remagen and Victory.
