Raised by a single mother, two brothers leave home and enlist in to the United States Marine Corps. After a rough start, the brothers go on to excel above their peers. One is sent to Iraq twice and is injured in combat while the other goes on to guard U.S. Embassies abroad. With both of her children gone for over four years, their mother is forced into her own enlistment of worry and anxiety.
When both brothers leave the Marine Corps, the failing economy in their home state forces them to move and one brother ends up in Iraq as a contractor. This is their story of success, humor, tragedy, adventure and love.
