In a opinion piece, Literature professor Nicolaus Mills encourages Americans to watch the 1946 movie The Best Years of Our Lives this holiday season, relating the theme of the post-World War II film to today's service men and women. Mills says that the film's relevance today lies in the fact that it "emphasizes that for those who fight them, our wars continue long after they officially end."
