This is the story of Echo Company 3rd platoon of 2nd battalion 24th marines first tour of duty in Iraq. In support of operation Iraqi freedom II, the platoon was split into three elements. 1st squad became security for explosive ordinance disposal team, 2nd squad trained the 507 Iraqi Army battalion, and 3rd was security for civil affiars team.

The riflemen of 3rd platoon went through a life changing experience; through the hellishness of war innocence is shattered. Mission accomplishment is the number one goal under all circumstances they endured. Boys are broken and men are made in the mist of war. This is the story of marines in Iraq's forbidden triangle of death.
