I've seen both American Sniper and Zero Dark Thirty with my cousin. I loved both movies.
They hit home for her a bit. She was an officer in the Army. A Major (O4), and she was with the 25th infantry division, as a cultural adviser. Though she was never assigned to a direct combat role, her unit did come under fire a couple of times. She said she was hit in the chest and abdomen, but thankfully her vest caught them.
She's taken me to gun ranges to teach me how to shoot better. One of her friends even got his instructor who was Spetsnaz (Russian special forces) to show me a couple of things.
I'm happy to have someone like her in my life.
