In honor of Veterans and Military Families Month, D23 has compiled a watchlist of all the Marvel Studios films that feature veteran and military stories. From Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) being an Air Force fighter pilot in Captain Marvel to Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie), a military veteran who runs a veteran support group in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the following films and series feature a variety of experiences related to serving in the military as an active service member and a being veteran, making them perfect to view this November.

In this 2011 film, Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) is deemed unfit for military service in World War II and volunteers for a top-secret research project that transforms him into Captain America.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier
In this film, set in present-day Washington, D.C., Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), aka Captain America, teams up with Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie), aka the Falcon, to battle a powerful yet shadowy enemy.

Captain Marvel takes viewers on a spectacular adventure from the 1990s, tracing the path of Carol Danvers (Brie Larson), an Air Force fighter pilot, as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes.
