No matter how you feel about what is going on in Iraq, this is a must see. Rips away the headlines to reveal the humanity behind the conflict.

Riveting! An indispensable record of the war in Iraq, because it comes from the men who lived it.
- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun Times
Unforgettable. A raw, intimate, and improbably funny portrait of the situation in Iraq in the year after President Bush declared that Major Combat"" was over.""
