The Bridge on the River Kwai
Toss up between Apocalypse Now and Platoon.

It's just hard to narrow it down to three.

Wow no way I can pick it, the Green Berets was really good for it's time, the Big Red 1 , have really enjoyed all of the war movies as I have grown up, 61 so 55 years of watching a lot of reruns to start with then the last 45 has had some awesome films imo.
