May is Military Appreciation Month, and these war movies that salute soldiers are free to stream on Tubi
Members of the U.S. military work round-the-clock, 365 days a year to serve and protect the country. During the month of May, their efforts are acknowledged and appreciated during Military Appreciation Month.
Congress designated May as National Military Appreciation Month in 1999 to ensure the nation was given the chance to publicly show their appreciation for troops past and present, Military.com reports.
Several specific military holidays are celebrated throughout the month to culminate with Memorial Day on May 31.
"May was chosen because it has many individual days marked to note our military's achievements, including Loyalty Day, established in 1921, Victory in Europe (VE) Day commemorating the end of WWII in Europe in 1945, Children of Fallen Patriots Day and the anniversary of the death of Osama bin Laden," Military.com writes.
No matter which day you’re reflecting upon the work of our country’s heroes, Tubi has got you covered. Tubi has an extensive collection of war movies and documentaries to mark the occasion, and all are free to stream.
