Cult of the Fallen Soldier--Transformations, 1973-2001

I would like to request help locating scholarship pertaining to George Mosse's "cult of the fallen soldier" specifically, and the "myth of the war experience" more generally (1979, 1986, 1990), from the end of the Vietnam War until the beginning of the War on Terror in the United States.  I have been working to compile a dossier of scholarship that cites Mosse or references these concepts, but have not yet been very successful in finding much scholarship that discusses changes in the social, cultural, political or military manifestations of the concepts.
