America ReFramed | Reserved To Fight
In May 2003, Fox Company of Marine Reserve Unit 2/23 returned home from combat on the front line in Iraq. Reserved To Fight follows four Marines of Fox Company through their post-war minefield of social and psychological reintegration into civilian life. The return home and into their communities proves as formidable a battle as the more literal firefights of previous months.
They live among loved ones who don’t yet understand them and how they have changed. They contend with a media focused on the politics rather than the human experience of war. And they suffer from a psychological disorder that is difficult to acknowledge. These young veterans grapple to find purpose and healing.
