Stuck on the easiest combat mission during the Iraqi "Surge" an ensemble of Soldiers support Operation New Horizons; a classified humanitarian mission in the northeastern mountains.

The FOBbits explore conflicting attitudes towards service; Under "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" a gay relationship gets complicated, a "Mafioso" Apache Pilot, that got promoted way to fast, is stuck flying Blackhawks or nothing at all, and a "been there,
done that "Sergeant struggles to cope with the 'New' Army."

Some of them clearly suffer from PTSD from past deployments!
