When Steven Spielberg decided to make the film War Horse one of the main reasons for doing it was to make sure veterans' service will never be forgotten.

Spielberg wanted to make the film to honor his father, who was a radio operator on a plane during World War II.

Spielberg said:

"My father is turning 95 this year and is a veteran of World War II… He served in Karachi on the China-Burma-India campaign. He was part of the 490th bomb squadron, the Burma bridge busters. He was a communications sergeant for the entire wing, in charge of communications between ground and air, and flew some sorties… I have been going to reunions and meeting all the veterans he served with.

I make my movies about war so that their contributions will never be forgotten… We live in an age where there is almost too much communication flying at us from all directions. Nobody seems to look back anymore. That's why I make so many films about history."

If there's one thing you can never go wrong doing, it's honoring our veterans, servicemen and women.
