Follows a USMC recon coy in the invasion of Iraq. Pretty damn good.

If it is to be believed the USMC officers at the Coy and Platoon level need some work. :lol:

"Mad Dog" Mattis (current Sec of Def) is the Div CO. Everyone is expected to keep up the "tempo" ;)

Have the series on blu-ray. From what I've read over the years in reviews from actual Marines and servicemen, an excellent and accurate portrayal of the Marines as far as the attitudes and the language they use.

I saw a video on YouTube a while back with the real life Sgt. Brad 'Iceman' Colbert (played by Alexander Skaarsgard) and it was uncanny how close the actor channeled the real life persona of the man.

And they gave that Rolling Stone reporter absolute shit while he was embedded with them. :lol:
