I believe that Saving Private Ryan was based on the Sullivan's having all the brothers serving at the same time (in a combat area).......  If I recall correctly in the scene where they come to deliver the death notifications to Ryan's mom you can see the stars in the window of the front porch.

 

Whenever you are at Pearl Harbor and read the names on the Arizona memorial there are quite a few siblings and even father & son combinations that died on the Arizona that day.

Others have paid a high price for the freedom we enjoy

Opening sequences should be mandatory viewing by Congress yearly  and high school / college  snowflakes who think war is like HALO and disrespect  all military.

It is a wonder Americans didn't commit more atrocities than they did..

There are those who feel they owe nothing to the military because our freedoms are given to us by the Constitution.

 

True, they are, but they are guaranteed  by those who were willing to sacrifice their tomorrows for those freedoms.  Doesn't matter if drafted or volunteered.
