much time you have on this earth.

These people have suffered for too long.

Change the course of history

in Afghanistan.

We had marched

for days with the Marines.


We ran out of everything.

And then we got, finally,

This could be Gulf Company's new home.

- This is it!

- Okay, let's get a team up there.

Next team's coming up!

Roger. Fox One's

clearing the area right now.

Go! Go!

Oh, my God.

What is this here?

And this is pure heroin

down here, you said?

So what do we have here?

Walled compounds like this one

fill Helmand Province,

We knew that we'd

accomplished our mission,

There is a squad that's surrounded.

Someone else has to go,

Saying he'll go in place of me.

Hey, do I got any friendlies

over there?

- Right or left?

- Uh, go left of the compound.

You got the dude in the white turban

that keeps looking at us?

While movement

through the fields and canals is slow,

There's a copper wire.

Where is it?

- Oh, yes.

- And it's running up

A patrol this morning found an IED.

They cut the command wire,

which is a wire that runs to a device

Command, three-two.

When you enlisted,

you didn't ask for this job, did you?

The villagers did not come.

The Taliban did not attack.

Stand by.

Hey, we got two people, 600 meters

away from us, moving southeast.

- Hey!

- Yeah?


Hey, what is he talking about?

Send your traffic. Hope you rock.

- I can't! I got bad left.

- Do it! Shoot it!

I shot at that motherfucker

that walked by the compound down there.

Saw him with a fucking AK

in his hand.

Shoot him!

- I hit that son of a bitch.

- Go!

Did you see those fuckers?

Just last night,

It was very lucky that, uh,

there were no major casualties

Stand by!

What's up?

We got smoke!

Straight down the road here

is where everyone is.
