Veterans Day: The Best of the Fictional Veterans

Happy Veterans Day (yes Veterans not Veteran's or Veterans' Day) to all those serving or who have served this country. To honor you, here is your Uncle Buck's favorite fictional veterans (General Patton above does not count since he was a real guy). God Bless America...

Sgt. Slaughter: Pro Wrestling's Drill Sergeant

Beetle Bailey: Sunday Morning Soldier

Capt. Benjamin J. Willard: (Apocalypse Now) "Everyone gets everything he wants. I wanted a mission, and for my sins, they gave me one. Brought it up to me like room service. It was a real choice mission, and when it was over, I never wanted another."

Captain America: Marvel's Military Superhero

Private Gomer Pyle: TV's Marine Mess-up

Col. Robert E. Hogan: Made Nazi Prison Camps Funny

Gunnery Sergeant Hartman: (Full Metal Jacket) "You will not laugh, you will not cry!"

"A jelly donut!!"

Sgt. Michael Vronsky: (The Deer Hunter) Don't ask him to play Russian roulette

"A deer has to be taken with one shot. I try to tell people that but they don't listen. "

Private Benjamin: The Flighty Female in Fatigues

"And I mean look at this place. The army couldn't afford drapes? I'll be up at the crack of dawn here!"

John J. Rambo: (First Blood/Rambo: First Blood Part II) Stallone's veteran pushed too far

"I want, what they want, and every other guy who came over here and spilled his guts and gave everything he had, wants! For our country to love us as much as we love it! That's what I want!"

Sgt. Rock: Fighting for America in the DC Universe

Private John Winger: (Stripes) "We're soldiers; but we're American soldiers. We've been kickin' ass for 200 years. We're 10 and 1."

"We're all very different people. We're not Watusi, we're not Spartans, we're Americans. With a capital "A", huh? And you know what that means? Do you? That means that our forefathers were kicked out of every decent country in the world. We are the wretched refuse. We're the underdog. We're mutts."

G.I. Joe: Because knowing is half the battle

With all the tragedies and problems in the world right now, we should take some time today to remember the men and woman we turn to whenever there is a problem. When hurricanes strike, or freedom is threatened our soldiers are the first to tie up their boots and put their feet on the ground. God bless you all, good luck and thank you.

Not one John Wayne character....And I'm sorry while they make be true, yet partly fictional, the "Band of Brothers" clan gets the nod all the way.
