The Story of G. I. Joe. We caught it on TCM.

The film follows Ernie Pyle, beloved World War II correspondent, as he accompanies an infantry detachment through the battle of Monte Cassino.

The focus of the film is not Pyle.

It’s the soldiers and what day-to-day life was like for them on the front lines. Per the trivia at, Dwight Eisenhower considered it the best war movie he ever saw.

As I watched it, I could not help thinking of my father, who was in the Ardennes in WWII.

And I could not help thinking of those among us today who would undo what those soldiers accomplished.
