MONDAY MOVIE MEME
Molly looked around for a weekly meme about movies and did not have any luck. So therefore she decided to start her own! Andy will play along as well - hopefully you will too. Go to your blog and create your own post on the topic, linking back to us in your post, then come back and leave a link to your post here in our Comments section. If you don’t have a blog, just share your response in the Comments section.
This week's movie topic is all about Soldiers...
This Monday in the U.S. is Memorial Day which is a day to honor the fallen soldiers of wars past and present. So therefore, we decided to dedicate this week's topic to those soldiers in film who live on in the big screen. Here are those we found to be particularly memorable. Share on your blog your soldierly choices, linking back here at The Bumbles. Spend your day thinking of or hugging a real life soldier, and don't forget to visit your fellow participants!
