Honoring Our Soldiers: A Video Tribute

November 11th, 2009 by Rebecca Harper Editor

For Veterans Day this year, our content team scoured the site to bring you Honoring Our Soldiers, a collection of videos that pay tribute to our Armed Forces. It contains a number of war flicks — Saints and Soldiers, Time Limit, Thunder Birds, McHale’s Navy (the 1997 version) — but there’s plenty more to watch.

The collection also features shows like Mail Call with everyone’s favorite honorary Gunnery Sergeant, R. Lee “Gunny” Ermy; War Stories with Oliver North; and Carrier, a favorite here at Hulu HQ. We also included a number of soldier-related documentaries and news stories for true-life stories of the brave men and women who serve our country. Among titles like Return to Tarawa, Nanking, and PBS’s Medal of Honor are two new documentary features: Jerabek, a candid look how the death of U.S. Marine Ryan Jerabek — killed in a firefight in Ramadi nine months after his high school graduation — impacted his family in Green Bay, Wisconsin; and When I Came Home, a documentary that chronicles the struggles of Vietnam and Iraq war veterans who end up homeless when they return to U.S. soil.

We’ll be posting interviews with filmmakers from each of the new documentaries in the next few days. In the meantime, everyone at Hulu would like to say a collective “thank you” to all of those who have served or are serving our country.
