What was not said hit me the hardest in the movie. There were many times when the soldiers being interviewed just sat in front of the camera and thought. No words would explain those thoughts so they didn't try to make sense of those thoughts. The most powerful part of the movie to me was when they had let off flairs where Restrepo had been killed. "Raise on up and say a prayer" one soldier said. Again the soldiers didn't say much, but you could see the pain in their faces talking about their fallen soldier. I would recommend this to my family and friends because we have a lot of vets and people serving now. I think it would be helpful for them to see that the soldiers can still have fun over there even though they are in a war zone.
