Overview

Based on the true life story of Lt. Col. Ralph Hayles (U.S. Army, retired), GUNFIGHTER: A GULF WAR CHRONICLE tells the story of an Apache attack helicopter pilot whose career and life are changed by a tragic friendly fire incident during the Gulf War of 1991. Mr. Hayles was the first soldier in over two hundred years of American military history to be named publicly by the military and media as the shooter in a friendly fire situation. GUNFIGHTER is the rich story of media and military, ambition and duty, and it reveals the complexity of professional relationships when they collide with technology and personal ambition. "This is a very patriotic play and represents many of the great things about our country, such as freedom of speech," says Mr. Hayles, who now lives and works in San Antonio. "Freedom of speech protected me but tore my life to pieces on the front end." The play is very presentational and allows for fabulous sound and video support.
