War Stories with Oliver North: Iraq: The Struggle for Freedom
Frequently bought together
Customers who bought this item also bought
During the first phase of Operation Iraqi Freedom, columns of Army and Marine armor raced toward Baghdad. But after the fall of Saddam's regime, the nature of combat changed. Foreign terrorists flooded into Iraq and allied themselves with former regime Baathist loyalists to instigate an insurgency. Out here, soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines refer to this phase of Operation Iraqi Freedom as - "the second semester of war."
In this gripping episode of "War Stories with Oliver North," we go door to door in "Operation Sheik 'Em Up." On these dangerous foot patrols in Ar-Ramadi, the 1st Marine Expeditionary Force, or I MEF, tracks hidden weapons and terrorists. You'll also hear from soldiers and Marines about what they are doing to win the hearts and minds of a hostile population.
But as dangerous as all of these tasks are - and as challenging as they have become - the soldiers and Marines are up to the task of protecting Iraq's fledgling democracy. This is their story, about those young Americans serving on the front lines, in the War on Terror.

This is a must have for every SEABEE, and every family member of deceased SEABEES. We too often get questions submitted to our "OPERATION SEABEES KNOWLEDGE" online SEABEE community, known as "The SEABEE grapevine ", from family members asking what a deceased loved one may have done while serving as a SEABEE. It's sad that such things aren't always discussed while the person is alive, and only after a SEABEE passes away are these questions asked of us. At best, we can only hope to roughly approximate what a person may have done and where he may have served. The only one with all the best first-hand knowledge is the SEABEE himself , so don't hesitate to ask before it's too late !!!!!! One of these DVDs would be a fantastic ice breaker, and a welcome gift for any SEABEE past or present.
It's my dream to have this DVD replace the old John Wayne film as the public's primary source of info on the SEABEES. John Wayne was a good role model at the time, but the film did not give an accurate account of how the SEABEES were born and only told a small part of the whole story !
If you don't know who the SEABEES are today , and what they have been doing in every miltary operation around the world for the last sixty five years,...see this episode.
