I saw this movie in the last five years but it could be older. I think the main character is the one who was killed at the end. During the movie, he would get cushier jobs than others in their squadron. He felt guilty about it but someone in his chain of command kept pushing him. I think but may be mistaken, they were in Italy. For some reason (training?) he was sent to a different base and met the woman who was in charge of the mess hall. I think it was on an island. She wouldn\’t date him to begin with because he would be like others who would come and leave. He would be at the mess hall every morning to spend time with her. They got married and he was sent back to the war. He was killed. Later she took his medal and gave to his parents because he was their son longer than he was her husband.
I think it is based on a true story, I think I googled her and she lived near the base where they got married and never remarried.
Its a lot of I don\’t knows but that is why I need to knw the name so I can watch it again!
Thank you for any help you can give
