Every day I am reminded of how much I have to be thankful for, living in the United States of America. But on Memorial Day I am especially grateful to the many fighting men and women who have paid the ultimate price to secure my freedom. So, during the Memorial Day weekend, I thought it appropriate to suggest some films that remind us how many others have given their lives on our behalf.
The World War II ten-part series Band of Brothers is the most exceptional television event ever created. The focus is on one company of soldiers, from the time they prepare to go to war through the battles they fought. Watching Band of Brothers, I am always reminded that a few gave everything so the many could experience American liberty.
The 2019 movie Midway is another excellent World War II example of sacrifice. The true-life story is about the famous battle in the Pacific that turned naval warfare to the advantage of the United States. Fury is another World War II film that focuses on one tank crew in an ultimate tale of courage. The movie by David Ayer is a homage to his family and all those who have served in the military.
