I'm not a shill for Angelina Jolie or NBC Universal. Nonetheless, I'm going to encourage you to see the move "Unbroken". It's a fantastic story about courage, guts, resourcefulness - all the best traits of our service members, past and present.
I also want you to notice what is missing - glaringly so - from the movie. It should come as no surprise to you that, unlike the book of the same name, the Hollywood ending finds Louie Zamperini basking in the glow of his newfound freedom.
