Hi Y'all,
This is from a listserv I'm on.  If you go to the URL mentioned, scroll to
the bottom of the page for the link to the discussion on Saving Private
Ryan.  It's just that - a discussion, but with many points of view.  Might
be interesting.....

>This film has stirred many to embrace the WWII experience and to reaffirm
