US Navy Veteran, Nuke MM(SS)DV, ships diver, currently Fireman/Rescue Technician/EMT
Saw an advance screening Thursday in Seattle. Powerful and well done. I also was fascinated with the "complex cultural dynamic " that existed between the Afghans, and wished that aspect would have been explored in greater detail, but... Hollywood! I don't want to spoil anything. I know I told my wife the story 20 times but she still was in utter shock throughout the movie!
A few of us made sure the applause continued throughout the entire remembrance time at the end. I was proud to be a Navy Veteran and Navy diver and grateful to those men who left it all out there. Far too many Americans have no idea what sacrifices are made on there behalf to give them the freedom they enjoy.
God bless their families.

Thanks for the post! Besides being the chief protector of my wife and 4 kids, I work as a professional firefighter and have had a pistol pointed at me by a feisty old man who didn't want us in his house even though his wife had called us! This will be fun to practice... using my 14 yo son! You enable us "regular joe" sheepdogs to make our communities a safer place!

awesome! I worked in the engine room on fast attack subs, and was also a ships scuba diver, although we wouldn't dare try to lock-out at depth... our depth control was so sketchy, 60' at one moment, 180' a minute later!
