    A deeply moving film showing what happens to amputees, to the men and
    women who survive the many roadside bombs in the Iraq War after the TV
    news reports finish their 30 second stories. Required viewing for
    everyone as it doesn't take sides but asks in every scene and interview
    - was this all worth it? Is there an official explanation that's
    plausible, understandable? The bravery of these men and women is
    unbelievable. One amputee soldier said she had a hard life growing up
    and joined the military "to stay out of trouble." It made me a little
    sick to watch - some very raw and honest footage - but it could have
    been a lot longer, with more opinions and stories, and all the better
    for it. Still, this should be shown everywhere, in every high school,
    every living room, in every office on Capitol Hill.
