Summary
  • Documents the story of an aspiring U.S. Army Ranger who inexplicably participated in an armed robbery hours before being deployed to Iraq, investigating the influence of the young man's superior and the Ranger indoctrination program
  • Alex Blum was a good kid with one goal in life: endure a brutally difficult selection program, become a U.S. Army Ranger, and fight terrorists for his country. In the first hours of his final leave before deployment to Iraq, Alex was supposed to fly home to see his family and girlfriend. Instead, he got into his car with two fellow soldiers and two strangers, drove to a local bank in Tacoma, and committed armed robbery. At first Blum insisted he thought the robbery was just another exercise in the famously daunting Ranger program. Ben Blum, Alex's cousin, began to question not only Alex, but the influence of his superior, Luke Elliot Sommer, the man who planned the robbery
