4War OIF/OEF Iraq and Afghanistan

See my list of BEST WAR MOVIES of all time here -> http://www.imdb.com/list/iPJvkqucd40/

This includes all titles I have watched about the War(s) on Terrorism, in particular the United States' wars in IRAQ and Afghanistan.

I try to focus more on the soldier's story and less on strategic decisions.

Several titles focus on the VERY difficult decisions combat soldiers make and the impact that has on them returning home. Boredom, terrifying moments, multiple deployments horrifying injuries and of course coping with the loss of good men and women.

In the end watching all of these only gives a 2 dimensional snippet of a experiences we (thankfully) cannot fully understand. The best we can do is help them continue to "come home" from our wars.
