Citizen Soldier

Synopsis: CITIZEN SOLDIER is a dramatic feature film, told from the point of view of a group of Soldiers in the Oklahoma Army National Guard's 45th Infantry Brigade Combat Team, known since World War II as the "Thunderbirds." Set in one of the most dangerous parts of Afghanistan at the height of the surge, it is a heart-pounding, heartfelt grunts' eye-view of the war. A modern day Band of Brothers, Citizen Soldier tells the true story of a group of Soldiers and their life-changing tour of duty in Afghanistan, offering an excruciatingly personal look into modern warfare, brotherhood, and patriotism. Using real footage from multiple cameras, including helmet cams, these Citizen Soldiers give the audience an intimate view into the chaos and horrors of combat and, in the process, display their bravery and valor under the most hellish of conditions.

Guys, individual things.

You have

to fucking correct that.

Like, your own self.

You have to be like, "Eh,

"when I go back, I'm only

going to have one lens.

"I got work.

I got other things...

I gotta drive."

- You hear what I'm saying?

- Yes, sergeant.

I shouldn't have

to preach to you guys

how to be grown men.

And that's what I'm...

this conversation

is just teaching you

how to be a grown man.

It has nothing to do

with military.

Gentlemen, nobody's going

to fucking care about you

more than you.

So if you don't care

about you,

and we're not tracking on it.

We're not going to push you

'cause we don't know.

- Make sense?

- All:
Yes, Sergeant.

All right.

What happened

with Barber at training,

I mean, is unacceptable.

But for me

as a leader,


that I have to correct.

Being a citizen soldier,

we all have

our civilian obligations

that we have in addition

to our military duties.

For instance, on this

last appointment myself,

I was a marketing director.

Colt Floyd was a combatives

and weapons instructor.

Damon Leehan was an X-ray tech

at a hospital.

Jared Colson

was a correctional officer.

Mycal Prince

was a police officer.

He was the first K9 officer

of his precinct.

Tyler Brown

was a mechanic.

So you have this whole group

of diverse individuals

who on the civilian side,

are doing regular,

normal, everyday stuff.

But now,

six months later,

they're on the side

of a mountain

fighting alongside

each other

in some of the worst conditions

that you can think of.

What's up, man?

So today I'm getting together

with Colt Floyd and Tyler Brown,

two guys that I deployed

with back in 2011.

I'm gonna throw some burgers on.

You guys want some brats too?

- Absolutely.

- All right.
