Out of all the things that I have done in my life one thing that I am proud to say is that I absolutely love being a part of the United States Army. I have never before felt such a sense of family, and there is no greater team to be a part of. Today, we celebrate Armed Forces Day. It was with the idea for citizens to come together and thank our military members for their patriotic service in support of our country that President Harry S. Truman led the effort to establish this single holiday.
Parades, open houses, receptions and air shows were held to celebrate the first Armed Forces Day held on May 20, 1950.
Below I have gathered a list of outstanding military movies to watch in honor of today’s holiday:
7. A Few Good Men
6. Act of Valor
5. Black Hawk Down
4. We Were Soldiers
3. Saving Private Ryan
2. Lone Survivor
1. American Sniper
U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle (Bradley Cooper) takes his sole mission — protect his comrades — to heart and becomes one of the most lethal snipers in American history. His pinpoint accuracy not only saves countless lives but also makes him a prime target of insurgents. Despite grave danger and his struggle to be a good husband and father to his family back in the States, Kyle serves four tours of duty in Iraq. However, when he finally returns home, he finds that he cannot leave the war behind.
