I watched Bridge on the River Kwai again last night. I never get tired of it.

Mash. It was about the people, not the battles.
Something about having been in the military for real makes the other stuff look too fake.
Closest to that real feeling was Saving Private Ryan.

For series Band of Brothers, or maybe The Pacific. I served out in WestPac, and had the opportunity to spend time in the jungles of the small islands where that war was fought. The series (rather uncomfortably) shows what it is like to be there (you just miss the smell, and trust me, you don't want that either).

Movies: Most already named. I'd add Hamburger Hill: expresses the futility of that war (men fighting well and hard in a cause nobody cared about at home, ultimately to leave with nothing to show for it)

Midway, one of the best. So many good ones, it's hard to choose. Kelly's Heroes comes to mind as well.
