Heartbreak Ridge, Patton, Saving Private Ryan – Which Movie’s War Hero Is the Best Vet?

War, as they say, is hell, and the soldiers of Heartbreak Ridge, Patton, Saving Private Ryan, and Platoon have been through the ringer. But they all stand strong. When you’re entrenched in the horrors of war and you need a little pick-me-up, who are you going to call? General Patton (George C. Scott), the ultimate motivational speaker in Patton, is a good choice. Or dial up guardian-angel fighter pilot Captain Garth (Charlton Heston) of Midway. And never forget about Sergeant Highway (Clint Eastwood), the tireless leader who can show you how to handle the impossible in Heartbreak Ridge, and Captain Miller (Tom Hanks), who saves the hopes of an entire group of men by saving just one of them in Saving Private Ryan. But of all these war heroes, who’s made of the sternest stuff? Who could inspire you to fight another day?
