X-Post: MiWSR: Shapiro on Kuklick, "The Fighting Sullivans: How Hollywood and the Military Make Heroes"


This reply is not per se a commentary on the Sullivans and that tragic WW II loss.

It is a reply within the broader context concerned with subject matter on how culture participates and is important for meaning of military history and experiences within the services and national history.

The webpage forwarded is more recent, 20th Century and early 21st Century history, as example of impact upon cultural life; it is a recorded version of Lee Greewood song backed up by members of the Armed Forces who celebrate the meaning of American History and experience and perhaps a more visual and vocal
sensation of just how relevant military history has been and remains.
