It doesn't sound correct to me. I'm left asking the question "Who is reminded of the military?" I could imagine the object being left off in a possibly stilted review of a play, a work of art, etc. or in a case where the author/speaker is trying to avoid using "you," "one," "me" etc. for whatever reason, but I wouldn't say that such is normal use.
If I'm reading the Duden entry correctly, erinnern can be used without "sich", i.e.
"dieses Denkmal erinnert [uns] an vergangene Zeiten"
I've seen sentences like this in "weaker" translations into English that I've read, but based on a number of other German verbs -- somehow, the NES translators had forgotten that English structure differs from German. (Sadly, at the moment, I can't recall what those verbs have been. Old age setting in, I guess....)
