Restrepo

The movie starts off pre deployment, and follows the soldiers during their 15 month deployment in the Korengal Valley. The movie is non-political, and shows what life on the front lines is like.

One thing that stood out was that during firefights we never see who the soldiers are shooting at. One of them explains that the enemy knows the terrain so well, that it seems like they are fighting ghosts.

The film ends by telling us that the US withdrew from the Korengal Valley. I’m guessing its not because our objectives there were achieved.
