        Nope, you are just not that old.

        Try We Were Soldiers with Mel Gibson and Sam Elliot or Memphis Belle.

                Lets go a bit back, to the most important of them all, “The Patriot”.

                  If you pay careful attention to "The Patriot" you'll see that it is "Braveheart" reset in the colonies. The script is virtually identical.

                        “To Hell and Back” if for no other reason then to see America’s most decorated WW2 hero (Audie Murphy) portray himself in a movie.

                              Does anyone have other recommendations?
                              I'd like to see that again. I'm pretty sure it was an HBO original movie but I don't see it being aired or even available on-demand.

                                Fantastic Korean War movie made in Korea, Tae Guk Gi: Brotherhood Of War (2004)

                                Epic is not the half of it.

                                I watched it for the rifles, lots of American Garands.

                                The soldiers are Korean, not American, but it is a great film nonetheless. A lot of emotional and dreamy stuff not usually packed into American movies. The battle scenes are astounding.
