An American, who happens to be gay, shares his experiences in Iraq,
29 August 2009 | by bammabonnieSee all my reviews

This movie is less about Jeff Key being gay as it is about any person's reaction and response to being in Iraq during a miserable mess of a war.Key is thoughtful, insightful and experiences all the confusion and bewilderment any of us would. I like it a lot. From his childhood in the South, in a white Christian family to the dessert of Iraq, we see Key's commitment to his country and how he developed it. I liked the scenes of his childhood, the Scouts, the patriotic parades, so much like our idealized version of hometown America,producing this sensitive young man. Key does a good job of demonstrating is growing sadness, yet reaffirms his commitment to his country and the Marines.
