Movies for Veterans Day

American FlagEach year on November 11th, Americans celebrate Veterans Day. On this day, we honor all men and women who have served in the armed forces, whether in times of peace or war. Over the years, Hollywood has produced a number of movies that center on wars fought by the American military. Many of these films have won major awards, and they all offer insightful and, often, harrowing views of life in combat.
