Military Movie: Stripes. The realism is incredible.

TV: M*A*S*H

I can't believe that noone has mentioned 'Apocalypse Now' !! it's a classic! :o
and yeah, Platoon and definitely Full Metal Jacket.

Does Top Gun count?  Not a real favorite, but didn't it do more for Air Force recruiting than it did for the Navy?

Top Gun is my absolute favorite movie from an entertainment perspective.

My favorite military TV show was Over There, but was canceled right before they aired the last episode.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Over_There_(TV_series)
People are not limited by the circumstance that they are born in. They are limited by the size of their dreams. Show them that their dreams can have no limits and in turn their accomplishments can be limitless.
