Yep, things are changing in Hollywood. Though Hollywood's far from perfect or fair, this kind of open patriotism and honoring of our military seemed all but extinct 5 years ago.
In fact, 5 years ago Hollywood was shamelessly lying to us about how patriotism didn't sell.
We're a long way from "truth, justice and all that stuff..."
Plenty of work left to do but you can't pretend things aren't getting better. I have a personal saying that applies here: "If you refuse to be pleased, I'm going to stop trying."
