[Vietnam War] Dennis Franz from the "Hill Street Blues" (left - when he was in the Vietnam War; right - when he starred in Hill Street Blues)Vietnam War Dennis Franz Hill Street Blues 82nd Airborne Division military service life-changing experience experienced death
Throughout the 1980s and ‘90s Dennis Franz made a name for himself as a character actor in some of the best films by Brian De Palma and on Hill Street Blues, but before he was baring all on television he was serving as a member of the 82nd Airborne Division in Vietnam. Franz said of his time in the military:
I was curious about the military service and went into the Army. [It] was a very traumatic, life-changing experience… I'm not as frivolous as I once was. I experienced death over there, and losing friends. I got as close to being shot as I care to. I could feel and hear bullets whizzing over my head, and that shakes you up quite a bit.
