One way that I like to remind myself of their heroism is through the art of movies. Understanding that the dramatic representation of their experiences is nothing compared to the reality, I find that I am filled with a deep sense of gratitude when I see the price of freedom presented on screen.
For Memorial Day, I prefer to spend time with movies based on true stories rather than fictional war films like The Patriot.
Here are the best Memorial Day movies to watch.
1. Saving Private Ryan
3. We Were Soldiers
4. 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi
5. American Sniper
