On a search and destroy patrol, U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Jesse Hattesohl and his team have one goal — find the Taliban, pin them down and attack. When a firefight erupts in an Afghani graveyard, Staff Sgt. Zach Fraker takes a bullet and the soldiers must race the clock to save his life. And in an earlier operation, a unit of Marines has been tasked with holding the southernmost line of Helmand Province, Afghanistan.
