I haven’t seen America’s latest patriotic Rorschach test. However, its success has helped bring attention to a Hollywood organization comprised of veterans and industry insiders called Got Your 6. Got Your 6’s aim is to certify (a nebulous, Orwellian term if my cynical eyes ever saw one) films about veterans as authentic. They want to discourage stereotypes—especially that of the broken, embittered, trauma-ridden veteran—and encourage more positive, “realistic” portrayals of our warriors.
Even the First Lady put her support behind the organization—a move that is sure to be less controversial than, say, encouraging children to eat more vegetables.
