Thanks for posting this notice. I hadn't head of this documentary but as a former Marine I had to see it. It follows the efforts of 1 Battalion 5th Marines as they try to bring stability to a section of the Helmand Province. Not an easy task but they bring dedication, perseverance and determination, which goes along way towards success. Their efforts are not without cost, LCPL Hogan in particular. In fact, his parents were the organizers of this event. They shared some of their experiences before and since his death. Plus, a couple Marine officers spoke about the current situation. My hope is that the hard won success is not squandered by an early withdrawal.

This documentary is definitely worth seeing.
