I had a date with Logan Lerman this past week. Okay, to be fair, he didn't have a date with me -- he was attending the premiere of Fury, his new World War II movie starring Brad Pitt, who was also in attendance. I was there because my father, a Marine colonel, was one of the dozens of military members invited to the event. It was amazing to meet Lerman, and the rest of the cast, but the film itself raised many questions for me.
In the movie, Logan's character -- an inexperienced U.S. Army tanker stationed in Europe in 1945 -- had to face the horrors of war and, in hardening himself to those gruesome realities, learn to become a different person.
