A soldier enlists just before the 9/11. He is not a brave man--simply volunteering to defend freedom. Arriving in Iraq in 2003, just after the occupation of Bagdad, with a few soldiers of his infantry platoon, he is sent to provide water to a village whose infrastructure was destroyed. Simple things however, such as water transportation, water distribution and the reconstruction of the plumbing became a challenge in war environment.

Uniform violations abound in this film. Primarily when the characters are "in garrison" and not in the combat areas or on patrol. In the staging areas you see troops in all kinds of combinations of physical fitness uniform or DBDUs (Desert Battle Dress Uniform i.e. fatigues). Hats, no hats. T-shirts only, no shirts, etc. This was not allowed except maybe within a tent or possibly in the makeshift gym. Everywhere else you'd be in full uniform, sleeves down, hat or helmet on, etc. You could also be in the PT uniform, but it had to be complete and you carried your weapon everywhere. If not, some Command Sergeant Major would scream at you. You weren't even allowed to wear your sunglasses around your neck or pushed up on your head. PVT Ocre is right when he gets yelled at for not blousing his boots. That happened all the time. See more
