In the past couple decades, the war in Iraq has taken precedence over the conflict in Afghanistan. The media and the public seem to forget we have been and still are rotating our military in and out of the country. When the military was pulled out of Iraq in 2011/2012, the media was so happy all our troops were coming home. They had forgotten about everyone in Afghanistan. The husband was deployed in Afghanistan at that time, so it hit a nerve with me. There have been very few movies made that portray the years we’ve spent in country, so I was so excited when I saw the trailer for 12 Strong. And I swear it’s not just because of Chris Hemsworth.
The movie is in theaters on January 19, but tickets on sale now for #12StrongMovie. Get them here!
Rated R for war violence and language throughout.
