Movie Reviews

A moving documentry
David P. Olsen | 01/12/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This was shot by solders and totally a-political. Follows one group of the Oregon National Guard in 2004. Not too graphic but real enough. We can't thank these guys enough."
A video gem
R. Mardis | Texas | 04/20/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I just finished watching this. Excellent. Its' a-political but if you hate the war, you probably won't like it because this shows how are National Guardsmen, ones who really serve their country and sacrifice as they usually leave better paying jobs and family to deploy, serving proudly and readily and facing real threats and ultimately loss.

These soldiers are a credit to the Army and to the Oregon National Guard. They serve with honor and grit and the story they tell is profoundly moving as real and not contemporary "feelings" and complaining and whatnot. This documentary covers some of the toughest periods to serve in Iraq, mid 2004 thru 2005.

I highly recommend this video. I wish the "where are they now" at the end could have been more inclusive, but maybe the ones that were left out, decided not to participate. It's still a job well done.

I'm an Army vet and have friends serving in Iraq now and this film touched me as I hoped it would."
Good realistic view of war

"As a returned Iraq war vet I can tell you this is a good glimpse of what war is like. A good addition to any vets library."
