The 10 Hottest Men in Military Movies

I did my homework on Memorial Day: I thought of real veterans for awhile, let my mind wander over to hot movie veterans, and then ranked the 10 hottest of those for your viewing pleasure. I might be the best American I know. Insert your hilarious "You're a Grand Ole Flag" puns here.

Even though he was a massive star, he could not escape the reach of Uncle Sam.
