The blue and silver-colored badge that Sergeant Sutton (Keanu Reeves) wears on the top of his rows of ribbons (they represent the medals and decorations he earned during the war), on his uniform jacket, is the Combat Infantryman Badge. The U.S. Army began to award this badge by an act of Congress in 1943 to infantry soldiers who had it can be documented had come under fire by the enemy. Awardees are authorized to wear the C.I.B., and granted a monthly stipend of ten dollars in addition to their other pay factors during World War II. Its design consists of a Kentucky rifle on a blue field. By wearing the C.I.B., the filmmakers communicate that Sergeant Sutton is indeed a combat veteran - thus, his nightmares of battle, and, presumably, his affliction of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.

I know most people put this movie down and call it "saccharine" but I happen to ADORE it and watch it every time it's on - usually ever weekend - and I never get tired of it. It's actually nice to see a man who is gentle and kind...who says that's not masculine? And Keanu is very easy on the eyes too!
Pure romance - the kind we rarely see and what we need more of! Less sex and violence!
