I love the way the classic movie stars honored our flag and country with such great respect. Unfortunately, I don't think we would see that incredible support in Hollywood today.

God Bless America and all of the wonderful freedoms we have!

Thank you for sharing this tribute, Laura! Happy 4th of July to you! Net

Happy 4th! I agree with Ned. Would be nice not to see Hollywood trash their own country.

I'm with you both, Net and Margot. And in addition to those great ideas, Walter, I also like STARS AND STRIPES FOREVER, with Clifton Webb as Sousa, and even STAR SPANGLED RHYTHM (to illustrate Net's first point).

Thank you all so much for your notes, I hope everyone enjoyed a marvelous Independence Day!

Love the movie recommendations. I have a STARS AND STRIPES FOREVER Blu-ray on my shelf I've been meaning to get to...story of my movie-watching life!! (The positive thing is I'll never run out of movies to watch, right?!) Thank you all!

Best wishes,
Laura

I forgot to mention that this year we didn't watch any of the mentioned titles. Instead we put on the 2012 documentary, HONOR FLIGHT, which dovetails nicely with these classic films. Unfortunately, current Honor Flights have been cancelled through the end of the year.

HONOR FLIGHT sounds good! I always enjoy a good documentary and as you say that subject matter fits in nicely with classic films. Thanks for mentioning it!

Best wishes,

Seth, HONOR FLIGHT(2012) is a really good documentary and so worth watching.

My Father and I went on an HONOR FLIGHT to the WORLD WAR II MEMORIAL in Washington D.C. on October 5, 2013. This was during the government shutdown, but that didn't stop those 74 men an 2 women World War II veterans, along with the rest of us, from experiencing a most HONORABLE AND MAGNIFICENT DAY! Walter M. Severs(my Father) told his granddaughter Caitlin(my daughter) that, "I never felt so honored in all my life, as I did when I went through those welcome lines."

Walter, that's absolutely marvelous to hear about your experience taking an honor flight with your father. I'm so very glad he had the opportunity. Any time I see video of the veterans greeted in airports and the like I'm tremendously moved. I'm so appreciative of his service!!

God bless him and all the brave men who defended our country.

Best wishes,
Laura
