Memorial Day Movies and Documentaries on SnagFilmsIf you're going to spend some time watching movies on your Roku over this Memorial Day weekend, why not spending it watching a few films and documentaries about our veterans and the battles they fought in? SnagFilms is featuring a lineup of 11 titles for Memorial Day, including the following:

  • Honor Flight (2012) - "A heartwarming documentary about four living World War II veterans and a Midwest community coming together to give them the trip of a lifetime. Volunteers race against the clock to ?y thousands of WWII veterans to Washington, DC to see the memorial constructed for them in 2005, nearly 60 years after the War."
  • Happy New Year (2012) - "The story of Sergeant Cole Lewis (Four-Eyed Monsters) who, mentally and physically scarred by his time served in Iraq and Afghanistan, finds humanity, compassion and friendship in a group of similarly injured veterans in the psychiatric ward of a remote veterans hospital."
  • Pearl Harbor: The Legacy of Attack (2001) - "After one of the most notorious sneak attacks in military history, join National Geographic for an exploration of the still unsolved mysteries and startling true stories behind the 'day of infamy' that plunged the United States into World War II. Set sail with Dr. Robert Ballard, discoverer of the Titanic, in search of a sunken Japanese midget submarine that could have changed history."
  • Battle for Midway (1999) - "One thousand miles from anywhere lay a lonely outpost of coral and sea called Midway. It was here in 1942 where the U.S. and Japan fought one of the greatest naval battles of World War II that changed the course of history. And it is here again where Titanic discoverer Dr. Robert Ballard now leads a team of experts and four World War II veterans on the voyage of their lives."
