A powerful presentation
5 June 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This powerful presentation of the story of 1SG David McNerney and "His Boys" of A Company details their journey from trainee to combat ready soldier to seasoned combat veteran. Through 1SG McNerney's leadership this group achieved a very special, everlasting bond. The interviews tell the story of McNerney's tough, but fair, not always by the book style which led to their success on the battlefield. Also evidenced by the interviews is the continued healing process from the horrors of war brought to these individuals by telling and sharing their story with others. This documentary leaves you with the shared feelings of pain, suffering and comradeship felt by a very special group, the men of A Company.
