"Reserved to Fight" trailer
"Reserved to Fight" video trailer; a documentary about Iraq War vets.
In May 2003, Fox Company of Marine Reserve Unit 2/23 returned home from front-line combat in Iraq. Reserved To Fight follows four Marines of Fox Company for four years through their postwar minefield of social and psychological reintegration into civilian life. The return to their communities proves as formidable a battle as the more literal firefights of previous months. Living among loved ones who don't yet understand them and how they have changed, contending with a media focused on the politics rather than the human experience of war, and suffering from a psychological disorder that is difficult to acknowledge, these young veterans grapple to find purpose and healing.

Reserved To Fight premieres Saturday, November 1, 2008. Check Local Listings to see when it is airing on your local PBS station
