Here I’m posting the complete presentation that I put together that I use in giving live presentations. This film simply consists of the images I captured with my camera. Additional narration is for historical perspective based on my knowledge, experience and conversations with many, many servicepeople. Filmed on location in Iraq (Haswa, Dora (Baghdad), Mahmudiyah and Arab Jabour). This footage was shot for Getty Images and is currently being processed for their website.
Part 1 is a partial repost of “The Concerned Citizens” segment.
Units Covered: 3/2 Stryker Cavalry Regiment, 1-89 Cavalry/10th Mountain, 2/15 Field Artillery/10th Mountain, 1/9 Field Artillery/3rd ID, 1/30 Infantry (Mech)/3rd ID and 22nd Marine Expeditionary Unit (SOC) – 2004.
I must give a huge thanks to Bill Roggio for helping me make this possible and allowing me to contribute to his work. You must check it out at:
* The YouTube intro is currently incorrect. The listed title for Part 1 is actually Part 2 and vice-versa. These links are the correct sequential links.

Take a trip around Afghanistan as members of the US National Guard work to raise a new army in Afghanistan. This 6:00 story starts in the western Afghan city of Herat, where Embedded Trainers effectively help the Afghan National Army quell large scale rioting in the weeks after Ismail Kahn is removed from power. From there we head back to Kabul and KMTC (Kabul Military Training Center), where new Afghan recruits get up to speed in warfare. Eight weeks of boot camp, then to the front you go.
Units covered: 76th Indiana Infantry Regiment, members of the Oregon National Guard, Afghan National Army, Herat detatchment.
