With America's two ongoing wars, it's no wonder Hollywood continues to produce movies dealing with the hardships returning soldiers endure. This week's 'The Messenger' and the upcoming 'Brothers,' focus on home-front troubles rather than the tribulations of battle.

These films follow a long history of cinema that portrays the lasting effects of war on individuals long after the last shots are fired. For Veteran's Day, we've compiled ten films that span nearly 70 years and present ten different veterans. While they range from fantastical to funny, each of them offers insight into serious struggle American heroes must endure.
