How Soldiers are Memorialized in Popular Culture

Hosted by , ,

During the early days of Hollywood and into the ‘50's, most war films celebrated the military and the heroism of American soldiers. Times have changed, so have the movies. The GI Film Festival, created to renew a sense of appreciation for military service, took place two weeks ago and was formally opened by John McCain. It's the creation of Brandon Millett, a civilian whose wife and festival-co-founder Laura graduated from West Point.
