If you haven’t seen this movie at least 100 times, what are you doing with your life?

Okay, not only is this movie good, but it’s kind of funny, considering the topic. Yes, there are some pretty moving scenes in it, but that just makes is so much better. If you’re looking for a movie that reminds you why we hate the Nazis, then this is a must see. Also, who doesn’t like Brad Pitt—in case you really needed another reason to see this film.
We Were Soldiers, another fantastic movie about our nation’s heroes. Not only does it depict what our Soldiers have gone through to protect you and yours, but it shows us what that service does to their family members. If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to serve.
