"Tells the story of elite groups of U.S. soldiers and Marines sent on dangerous missions deep inside some of Afghanistan's most hostile valleys. The film culminates with what was planned as a single-day strike turning into nine intense days of harrowing combat against an invisible, hostile enemy in the country₂s complex terrain where no foreign troops have ever dared to go before. Two embedded journalists, a father and son, bravely followed the troops through the fiercest and most blood-soaked battlegrounds of the conflict."--Container

Brothers forever : the enduring bond between a Marine and a Navy SEAL that transcended their ultimate sacrifice by Tom Sileo( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Four weeks after Navy SEALs had killed Osama bin Laden, President Obama stood in Arlington National Cemetery to deliver his Memorial Day address. He extolled the heroism and sacrifice of the two men buried side by side in the graves before him: Travis Manion, a fallen US Marine, and Brendan Looney, a fallen US Navy SEAL. Although they were killed three years apart, one in Iraq and one in Afghanistan, these two former roommates and best friends were now buried together - 'brothers forever.' Journalist Tom Sileo and Travis's father, Colonel Tom Manion, USMC (Ret.), tell the intimate and personal story of how these Naval Academy roommates defined a generation's sacrifice in Afghanistan and Iraq. From Travis's incredible bravery on the streets of Fallujah to Brendan's anguished SEAL training in the wake of his friend's death and later acts of heroism in the mountains of Afghanistan, Brothers Forever is a remarkable story of war and friendship"--Publisher description

In Afghanistan, Allen oversaw the strategic shift from troop-intensive counterinsurgency operations to the development of Afghan security forces. As he orchestrated that change, he managed the removal of 33,000 U.S. troops from the country, closing hundreds of bases as he handled the months-long closure of supply routes through neighboring Pakistan, and led the crisis response to a spate of attacks on coalition personnel by members of the Afghan security forces
