Synopsis

Frontline: The Wounded Platoon
The municipality of Colorado Springs, Colorado - an apparently charming community situated about an hour south of Denver - might seem an unlikely source of mass tumult. But the city in fact bears a dark connection to the Iraq War of the early 21st Century. A U.S. Army base called Fort Carson is situated in the immediate vicinity , and witnessed the suicides of 36 servicemen and 11 homicides during the Iraq War period. And nearly all of those slayings emerged from the same U.S.A.F. unit: Third Platoon, Charlie Company, 1st Battalion of the 506th Infantry. But what events transpired in this unit to account for such horrors? As produced for the groundbreaking WGBH series Frontline and originally aired on PBS, this documentary program concurrently relays the horrifying tale of this drug and alcohol-riddled platoon, and asks unflinching, incisive questions about the mental, emotional and psychological impact of the Iraq War on ordinary young Americans - questions which lead to the inescapable conclusion that post-traumatic stress and repeat military tours of duty may returning an entire generation of servicemen to the homefront as deeply confused and tortured instruments of destruction. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
