The 5th Battalion, 20th Infantry Regiment Soldiers remaining at Fort Lewis who joined that struggle went to a movie premiere of sorts on June 5, a viewing more sober than gala. The BCTC staff spent months processing the battle with its participants, piecing together interviews, still photos and videos shot by Soldiers themselves. The aim was to produce a linear account on DVD of the extended battle in the hope of distilling lessons for the counterinsurgency fight and future U.S. warfare.
