Un-Biased look at what happens on the Nimtz when it goes to war.
30 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Very well made documentary about what happens aboard the USS Nimtz when it goes to war in 2005 to support Colition Forces in Iraq. It shows how the soldiers come together, despite different political views on the war, to accomplish their mission in the Persian Gulf. It gives a good look at the toll such a long deployment takes on the sailors/marines personal lives, moral and job performance. This documentary covers everything from homosexuals in the military to religion to combat and everyday life aboard the ship. Shows sailors/marines on liberty and what they are allowed to do and not to do. Also interesting is that is seems to focus more on the enlisted then the officers especially the pilots. Its nice to see a documentary on military life that just doesn't dwell on officers or pilots but focuses more on the enlisted men.
