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.

End of exercise.

( Chattering )


We gotta figure something out.

Eran Harrill:

Barber, are you missing a lens?

Yeah, I got

my dark eye pro on me.

In your glasses,

are you missing a lens?



You're missing a lens?

He is, yeah.

I can see

out of this one

more than I can this one.

Is that your firing eye?

How'd you lose a lens?


My glasses were already broken

and while I was getting

my dark Eye Pro out,

the movement and the contact,

last iteration, it fell out.

So we're talking

a week and a half ago.



Eran Harrill:

Goodness gracious, Barber.

You have other glasses

you wear at home?

- Maybe.

- So now you're missing a lens.

That means when you go back

to civilian life,

you're still going

to be missing a lens, right?

- Yes, sergeant.

- Gosh, man.

This isn't a military thing.
