Lets remember the fallen heroes

Let's remember the fallen heroes

It's Memorial Day, and while we hope many of you are reflecting on those who gave their lives in order for this country to be as free as it is today, we also recognize that Hollywood has done a decent job of providing some excellent "tributary" fare as well. So, just in case you're trapped inside this Memorial Day, we wanted to give you a selection of movies you can watch with your significant other as we remember our fallen heroes.

In no particular order, here are some of our favorites:

  • Saving Private Ryan
  • Platoon
  • Hamburger Hill
  • Glory
  • The Patriot
  • We Were Soldiers
  • Gettysburg (1993)
  • Go for Broke (1951)
  • Pork Chop Hill (1959)
  • The Bridge on the River Kwai
  • The Longest Day (1962)
  • Sands of Iwo Jima (1949)
  • From Here to Eternity (1953)
  • Flying Tigers (1942)
  • Patton (1970)

Hopefully these will bring to mind some of the sacrifices made for us in year's past. We're certainly thankful for our troops overseas and want to send our hearts to those who may have recently lost loved ones fighting for our freedom.

Is there a memorial for Normandy? Just curious why I am not seeing Saving Private Ryan mentioned.
