Outline

A US Army unit arrives in Iraq for their first tour of duty and quickly find themselves engaged in a bloody firefight. The squad emerges from the engagement essentially unscathed, though “Scream” and Lieutenant “Mad Cow” disagree over an interpretation of the squad’s orders. A rash decision by Bo that jeopardised “Dim’s” life gets him a serious chewing out from “Scream”. When the soldiers go on a post-action “beer run”, their truck contacts a buried improvised explosive device (IED) and Bo’s right leg is blown off below the knee. “Dim’s” wife, Vanessa, is shown to be cheating on him while he is away.
