3 Movies to Watch on Veteran’s Day

Posted by Paul Murray on Monday Nov 10, 2014 Under Movie Articles

Veteran’s Day is a Federal holiday that is celebrated on November 11, in the United States, in memory of all those who served in the U.S. Armed Forces. There are quite a few amazing movies perfect for watching on Veteran’s Day and here are just a few of them.

Forrest Gump

Forest Gump is the Oscar-winning classic film starring Tom Hanks as Forest Gump, a relatively average guy with a relatively above average IQ. At first glance, there would seem to be nothing special about Forest however, he manages to spend much of his life in situations that the average individual would never have imagined himself in. The most amazing part of it all is that he doesn’t even try to be involved in any of them. Forest inadvertantly gets to teach “the King”, Elvis Presley, how to dance, serve in Vietnam with honor, meet Richard Nixon, Lyndon Johnson, and John F Kennedy, discover the all too familiar break-in that takes place at the Watergate, defeat the world-famous Chinese national table tennis team, become one of the first to invest in Apple Computers, and even spend several years of his life running back and forth across the entire country. Yes, Forest is a special guy who doesn’t ask for much out of life. The only thing that he does seem to want, throughout the entire movie, is to be with his one true love, Jenny (Robin Wright Penn).

Act of Valor

What should have been a simple snatch-and-grab rescue of a kidnapped CIA operative, turns into a race to save the entire world from one of the most terrifying global threats imaginable. Act of Valor is a fictional account of the reality that is the day to day life of Navy SEAL operations. It tells the story of one Navy SEAL team in particular, whose simple recovery effort turns into an edge-of-your-seat fight for life. While out on a standard mission, the team discovers much more than they bargained for. Watch as this highly trained team of SEALs works against the clock to do what they do best, and destroy the threat before it destroys everyone alive.

Dear John

Dear John is a story about true love, and its ability to bring about two distinctly different sets of consequences in life. When John Tyree (Channing Tatum), a young soldier serving in the military, falls in love with Savannah Curtis (Amanda Seyfried), it seems like a love that will never end. John spends the next seven years making it through each deployment simply because of the letters that he receives from Savannah. However, when the letters suddenly begin to change in tone, an unexpected chain of events results in consequences that neither John, nor Savannah, would have ever expected.
