St. Augustine was no fan of war, but understood it was sometimes necessary, ironically as it may sound, in order to obtain peace. There have been plenty of good movies made about those who made the heroic sacrifice to fight for that peace, and a lot of them are on TCM today. But, you know, there are some maybe not so great flicks you might be interested in as well. Here's a recap of six war movies we've covered that will probably never make Turner Classics' Memorial Day schedule.

Okay, okay, it's fine to have a little fun, but let's not forget what Memorial Day is all about. Join me, will you, in a prayer for all those who fought for others who couldn't...

All Powerful God, we honor today those men and women, our sons and daughters, husbands and wives, fathers, brothers, sisters, mothers, who have laid down their life for their country. Whether weary or emboldened, quiet or defiant, vulnerable or ready when you called them home. Their sacrifice is too humbling for words except these uttered in prayer. Loving Lord, bless them forever in Your eternal peace. Cherish their spirit, honor their commitment, send them our love, and will never forget the service that they gave. Amen.
