Memorial Day Movies Watch List is here. Did you know that Memorial Day is Monday (May 27, 2019). The Memorial Day Weekend is here. **********Check out these nine fantastic military videos. My favorite is about a military tank crew driving a Tank named Fury. Movies like Full Metal Jacket and Platoon demonstrate the ugliness of war. If you prefer something lighter and comedic, see the military movie called Stripes. It has Bill Murray as the main character.
