Storyline

Winner of four Emmy(R) Awards, including Outstanding Directing for Nonfiction Programming (Jon Alpert, Matthew O'Neill)! The 86th Combat Support Hospital (CSH)--the U.S. Army's premier medical facility in Iraq and formerly one of Saddam Hussein's elite hospitals--is the setting for this unforgettable documentary that puts a human face on the war's cold casualty statistics. Directed by Emmy(R)-winner Jon Alpert (HBO's 'One Year in a Life of Crime'), the film profiles the doctors and nurses at the 86th who fight to save wounded soldiers who are Medevaced (helicoptered) in on a numbingly routine basis. In addition to capturing the drama of victims and caregivers in the ER, the film provides vivid frontline rescue footage with the 54th Medical Company Air Ambulance Team along with tension-filled scenes of soldiers patrolling what is considered the most dangerous road in the world: the five-mile highway from the Baghdad Airport to the CSH.

Everyone should see this movie
30 October 2006 | by alicia41117See all my reviews

This movie hit a little closer to home for me because my husband is Spc Chester Keenum. I know first hand the sacrifices that our soldiers and their families make. The news does not show things like this and I think people should know. My husband and these soldiers fight for us. My husband makes the sacrifices he does for this country to insure that our children and your children will have a safe country to grow up in. We lived at Walter Reed For 4 months as he had numerous surgeries. These people are only a handful who have made serious sacrifices. You will meet some of the bravest men and woman in the world at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. If ever in the D.C. area you should visit them, they are truly inspiring. My husband did return to Iraq and finished his tour and now is back home with us. His eyesight is better than the doctors ever imagined and we thank God every day that he blessed us. Keep our soldiers in your prayer constantly, they need it.
