Heros?

In 2009's Quentin Tarantino "Inglorious bastards" there's a story about Fredrick Zoller, a Nazi sniper. Apparently he was so successful that they made a movie based on his "accomplishments".
In the movie the entire Nazi party, including Hitler himself celebrated the sniper's story by attending his movie premier.
Now, in 2014 America is celebrating its famous sniper in a movie which is "also" based on a true story (I am not compering the two characters). And it seems like the entire country is going to this premier.
So it got me thinking, haven't we learned anything? Is it important in this day and age to glorify violence, (just or not)? And what message are we sending our kids?
