Home of The Brave is a 2006 action war drama directed by Irwin Winkler and written by Mark Friedman. In the film, four Army National Guard soldiers, LTC William Marsh (Samuel L. Jackson), SGT Vanessa Price (Jessica Biel), SPC Tommy Yates (Brian Presley), and SPC Jamal Aikens (Curts "50 Cent" Jackson), are nearing the end of their tour in Iraq. Before they can return home, they are given one last humanitarian mission to complete. The close-knit soldiers are optimistic about returning home and are feeling relaxed as they set out to deliver much needed medical supplies to a remote Iraqi village. Unfortunately, the mission goes haywire when the soldiers are ambushed by Iraqi insurgents. The group suffers many losses during the battle. The soldiers who survived the ambush have significant injuries, both physically and psychologically. When they have had a little time to heal, they are sent home to the United States. While in the U.S. each of the soldiers has to deal with the memories of the past while trying to survive in the present.moreless
