Many war films have been produced with the cooperation of a nation's military forces. The United States Navy has been very cooperative since World War II in providing ships and technical guidance, Top Gun being the most famous example.

As a nation, we honor all the people who have given their lives for our country since 1776! Remember this during the weekend, especially Monday, as you spend time with family and friends enjoying freedom that is NOT free. I honor of these hero's, I present the Top 15 War Movies to be watched this week and weekend for Memorial Day.
