A group of U.S. soldiers returning from Iraq struggle to integrate back into family and civilian life, while living with the memory of a war that threatens to destroy them long after they've left the battlefield.
12 Strong tells the story of the first Special Forces team deployed to Afghanistan after 9/11; under the leadership of a new captain, the team must work with an Afghan warlord to take down the Taliban.
Megan Leavey is a US Marine corporal who served as a Military Police K9 handler. She was paired with military working dog Rex (E168). The pair served two deployments in Iraq together. They were first deployed to Fallujah in 2005, and then to Ramadi in 2006, where they were both wounded by an improvised explosive device. Leavey was awarded the Purple Heart and the Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal with a "V" device denoting heroism in combat..

Inspiring and good movie
Greetings from Lithuania.
"Megan Leavey" (2017) is a good movie in short. The first hours was pretty amazing, reminded me of "Hurt Locker" (movie which i love). Later it wasn't so involving or captivating or intense, yet i really enjoyed till the end. Performances were very good by all involved as well it has a good directing.
Overall, "Megan Leavey" is an inspirational story very well told. And if you love dogs, you might pick up some handkerchiefs.
