5 Movies You Can Watch With Your Kids in Honor of Veterans Day

I took my daughter to place a flag at my grandfather’s grave this morning in tribute to his service in the Army this Veterans Day. She is just three years old, so still a bit young to understand the holiday’s history, but there are a few movies out there to enjoy with your kids while also teaching them about those who have served for our country.

All of the films featured in the gallery below are available at Amazon — and some can even be viewed instantly. You might also want to check Netflix or your cable’s On Demand movie selection for these same titles to enjoy tonight or this weekend with your family.
