The "Heroizing" of the Military

This is a clip from a movie called "The Americanization of Emily" with James Garner and Julie Andrews, both of whom I love.  In it James Garner gives an eloquent denunciation of memorializing war.  I pray for our military men and women and wish them out of harm's way.  I'm also grateful for the defense of freedom that men and women have made in the past, up to and including the bloodshed required for freedom of mankind.  However, I think if we made an honest assessment of the wars of the past, there would be few that could leap that hurdle.
