The story of the first major battle of the American phase of the Vietnam War, and the soldiers on both sides that fought it, while their wives wait nervously and anxiously at home for the good news or the bad news.
A marksman living in exile is coaxed back into action after learning of a plot to kill the President. Ultimately double-crossed and framed for the attempt, he goes on the run to find the real killer and the reason he was set up.
Navy S.E.A.L. sniper Chris Kyle's (Bradley Cooper's) pinpoint accuracy saves countless lives on the battlefield and turns him into a legend. Back home to his wife and kids after four tours of duty, however, Chris finds that it is the war he can't leave behind.

Rafe falls head over heels and he and Evelyn and Rafe hook up. Then Rafe volunteers to go fight in Britain, and Evelyn and Danny get transferred to Pearl Harbor. While Rafe is off fighting, suddenly one morning comes the air raid we now know as "Pearl Harbor."Written by

Roosevelt never demonstrated to his cabinet how he struggled to walk again.
In the attack scene, the Japanese planes fly over Spruance class destroyers and Perry class Fast Frigates. These are ships built in the 70's & '80's Near the end of the film, Navy nurses are being awarded the Purple Heart. this is a medal awarded to armed forces personnel wounded in battle. I don't recall seeing any nurse wounded. And no pilot would ever play "chicken" in a military aircraft
