Indivisible (2018) Movie Script

I pledge allegiance
to the flag
of the United States
and to the Republic
for which it stands,
one nation, under God,
with liberty
and justice for all.
Fort Bumblefoot
is under attack.
Quick. Pow, pow, pow.
They're coming.
No one gets past Electric Elie.
Or me, Samurai Sam.
Oh, no! An "in-surgeon"!
Secure the gate!
Okay, guys, send the commander
back to HQ.
He still has three boxes
to unpack.
He doesn't have time for boxes.
Fort Bumblefoot
is taking fire.
And stop calling Meribeth
an insurgent, okay?
Pull back.
Pull back. Pull back!
Oh, sneak attack!
Evacuate! Run!
- Don't tear my sheets.
- Run. Run.
Oh, I'm trapped.
Save yourselves.
No, don't come back
for 15 minutes!
Tonya, open up.
If you changed the locks
on our house again,
- I swear, I'll...
- Really?
This is what "I promise
to do better" looks like?
Just let me in.
You smell like a whiskey plant.
Yeah, well, don't worry
about it, I'll sleep it off.
You know I have your commander
on speed dial, right?
So help me, Michael,
you could quit caring about me,
but you better find a way
to be the man
those girls in there
need you to be...
no, deserve for you to be.
Gon' mind your own business?
Well, we met the neighbors.
Tac unit nine,
shots fired call.
Lanier and Kennesaw.
Lanier and Kennesaw.
Suspect believed to be
in the house.
Suspect mid-30s,
six-one, 200 pounds.
We need one in the back!
Go! Go, go, go, go, go!
All right, give me
your other hand.
- Papi!
- You're gonna get up slowly.
He just fell back to sleep.
There's my girl.
How you doing, sweetie? Huh?
There's my girl.
Hey, baby.
Amanda, what you doing?
You haven't heard?
- Or seen the news?
- What's wrong?
We're going to stay with my mom
and Herb in Savannah
until you get back.
...joining our newscast.
It was announced
a short time ago
that Fort Stewart
will be deploying
more than 1,000...
Baby, we don't even know
if that's my unit, all right?
Julie and Amy
already called me.
I just... I don't know
what I'm gonna do
with her and with work
- and nobody to watch her.
- Hey, hey.
I don't know what
I'm gonna do.
Hey, look at me.
Slow down, baby.
You don't have to worry
about a thing.
You can stay here.
Near the base,
near the other wives,
the other kids.
You're gonna have more
of what you need here
than at your mom's.
All right? Trust me.
So I've committed
more than 20,000 additional
American troops to Iraq.
The vast majority of them...
five brigades...
will be deployed to Baghdad.
If we increase our support
at this crucial moment
and help the Iraqis
break the current cycle
of violence...
Mom, what's a prime number
Mm, numbers only divisible
by one and themselves.
Hey, Mom, sorry, I'm back.
Well, I know you're busy
so I won't keep you, dear.
But I'm telling you,
it's the reason he can't sleep.
Your boy needs his mother.
Ma, Ma.
I, um...
I'm getting deployed to Iraq.
I just came from seeing
Colonel Smith, sir.
I'm on the list.
I know.
The timing is not ideal, son.
You just finished basic.
I'd like for you to have
more non-combat experience
first, but, uh,
a military-wide shortage
of chaplains says otherwise.
Infantry battalion, he said.
Surge unit.
They're the tip of the spear.
Moving headlong every day
into trip wire, snipers,
driving roads laced with IEDs.
Well, I signed up to be
where the need is, sir.
12 months will go by fast.
A bit faster than 15,
for sure.
15, Chaplain.
Okay. Okay, okay, okay, okay,
Ah, time-out, time-out.
- Gotcha.
- You missed!
- You missed.
- What do you mean I missed? - ELIE: Daddy.
I just hit you.
I totally hit you... miss?
- Daddy. Daddy.
- What's up?
- To cheer...
- Elie. up.
- Honey. Honey. Where's your inhaler?
- Sweetie, sweetie, sweetie.
- Where's your inhaler?
Where is it?
You don't have it? Okay.
Um, I'm gonna go get
the spare...
I'm gonna go get the spare.
Hang on a second.
Hey, whoa, whoa, here it is.
I got it. I got it.
- You got it?
- I got it. I got it.
Come on, bug, up, up, up, up.
Sit up, sit up, sit up.
You ready? One. Ready?
- Huh? You okay?
- Ready, one more?
Just breathe.
- Good. Okay.
- Okay?
- All right, come here.
- Okay, sweetheart.
- Let's lie down, honey.
- You're okay.
All right, we are good.
- We are good.
- Good, good, good.
- You okay?
- We're good.
You good? Yeah.
Ah. Yeah. Y-Y-Y-Yeah.
Okay, go. Go.
Thanks for coming, guys.
- Heather, look who it is.
- Yeah.
Oh. Hi.
Darren Turner.
Uh, Chaplain Turner, actually.
It's nice to meet you.
Major Michael Lewis.
Uh, Tonya. Nice to meet you.
- You, too.
- Properly, this time.
I'm Heather.
It's so nice to meet you.
You, too.
Do you want to get a drink?
- Uh, yeah, sure. Thanks.
- Yeah.
Got a cold one?
Yeah, man, I've been
icing them since dawn.
There you go.
Chaplain, huh?
- Yeah.
- Yeah.
So I guess you really enjoyed
the show the other day.
Oh, look, man, all I know is
we all got lives going on
in our houses,
and family or not,
life's just plain hard.
The family I got in Iraq
is a crazy bunch,
but they're easier
to deal with than this one.
Well, it's
the first tour for me,
so I'll take
any advice you got.
Leave your heart at home.
Daddy was a preacher
She was his wife...
Hey, babe, can you...?!
Oh, hi.
You're right there.
You know, shine a light
What are you doing?
Just watching you.
Oh, yeah?
I look real cute right now.
Said he made
the wrong choice
Though it might be painful
Come here.
You know that time
will always tell
Those people have long
since gone
My father never failed
15 months without this face.
God's in this, right?
I know He is.
Then I'll be fine.
And so will we.
'Cause even when
the storm comes
I am washed by the water
Even when the earth crumbles
under my feet
Even when the ones I love
Turn around and crucify me
I won't never, ever
let you down
Make sure you listen
to your mom.
I won't fall
Love you.
I won't fall as long
as you're around me
Even when the rain falls
Make sure this little one
remembers me.
Why do you think I made you
take all those pictures?
I am washed by the water.
I love you, Mom.
- Elie, baby, come on. No.
- Please don't leave.
- Daddy?
- Yeah.
What if something bad happens
to you?
Remember, honey.
I always got
my special armor on.
I know, Daddy.
You know what?
Why don't you hang on
to this for me?
And whenever you feel scared
or you miss me,
you look at that,
and you remember
who's keeping me safe.
I love you like crazy.
I love you like crazy, too.
Don't forget to send
goofy-face pictures.
- Okay?
- I won't.
Love you.
Welcome to Baghdad, people,
within 30 miles of which
80% of all of Iraq's
sectarian violence takes place.
Now, here at Forward
Operating Base Falcon,
we are 8.1 miles south
of the Green Zone,
but a nine iron away
from a freeway
we are not allowed to control,
and neighborhoods
full of people
we're both here to protect
and those who will try
and kill us.
It's your job to know
the difference.
Head on a swivel.
Watch your six.
At ease.
Major North,
Chaplain Darren Turner.
Good to meet you, Chaplain.
Welcome to camp.
Nice to meet you, too,
Sit, sit.
Master of Divinity, huh?
How's that working out
with your kids?
Your kids, Chaplain.
'Cause North here, he's
got grand accreditation, too,
but he'll be the first
to tell you that, uh,
in the real world,
much less this one,
theory and master's
just goes right out the window,
kind of like at home
with three kids.
Well... they're ten months
to eight years,
so... so far they're on board.
Well, it's
always a bonus having
a chaplain who's a family man.
Divorces filed
in the last three months.
And, hey, mine didn't last
either, so I'm not judging.
But I do know that soldiers
losing families and having
nothing to go home to
is not the stabilizing force
we need around here.
Which goes
for you and yours, too.
Oh, uh, understood, sir,
but... Heather and I
are called to this.
I mean, she even volunteered
for the family support team.
It's what it's about for us.
Well, all right, then.
- Welcome to Falcon, Chaplain.
- Thank you, sir.
the Casualty Response is a part
of Family Readiness Group,
and, um...
I... I'm...
I'm sorry. I'm sorry.
I'm listening to myself, and...
they can call it
the Family Readiness Group,
but... this is
our third time out,
and nobody's ever really ready
for this job.
I imagine it's a hard job,
but I really do feel
called to it.
Maybe I shouldn't
ask you this, but...
Every time
Michael comes home...
he's more... angry.
Do you think you can ask Darren
to look out for Michael?
I don't know,
maybe talk to him?
- Of course.
- Gun range
is down that road.
Hospital's on the right.
Chow's on the left,
and the chaplain's tent's
right down there.
- Can I speak with you, Chaplain?
- Certainly.
Darren, why don't you go
to the range
and meet your assistant,
Sergeant Peterson?
I'll take your gear for you.
Cease fire!
- Excuse me, Captain.
- Huh?
Know where I can find
a Sergeant Peterson up here?
You found her, sir.
No offense taken,
but if there's a guy here
who can keep you alive
and run your office like I can,
I'll eat my helmet.
If you get any better,
you're gonna embarrass
the snipers around here,
Six years Atlanta PD.
Here by way of National Guard.
Here by the way of Fort Stewart
and six years
of college campus ministry...
so it was pretty much
the same thing.
Don't forget, Daddy, send us
- goofy-face photos, okay?
- Aye, aye, Cap.
- Mommy wants her turn now.
- Thank you. - Phone hog!
I only got to talk
for one minute!
- Oh, they were so excited to talk to you.
- It is so great to hear your voice.
- You, too.
Man, two weeks feels like one
and a hundred at the same time.
A hundred?
Wow. How you holding up?
Well, I am enjoying sleeping
on your side of the bed.
- Is that bad?
- Hardly.
I have a one-man cot
all to myself...
you should live it up, too.
But I really think
I can make a difference here.
Yeah, of course you can.
Oh, hey, okay,
so the website is up,
and our plan is just
to post pictures every day
so you don't miss a thing.
Oh, um,
I'm out of time already.
Okay, next time
the kids'll have to wait.
I love you so much.
I love you, too.
Oh. Hey...
Sergeant. Just... come in.
Jacobsen moved up
the meet and greet,
but deliveries
from the family come first.
army business there, Chaplain?
Uh, keep a family together,
keep a soldier together.
- Darn right.
- So, today,
third and fourth platoons
are gonna sweep
our next-door neighbors again,
see if we can slow down
the welcome gifts
coming over the wall.
- Hooah?
- Hooah!
Chaplain Turner,
mind sending them out?
It's been an honor meeting
such amazing men and women,
committed to our country
and defending the defenseless
here in Iraq.
I hope it goes without saying
that my tent is open 24/7.
I'd like to meet you all.
be with these men and women
as they go out today.
Please protect them.
did I sound okay
out there today?
Sorry, I used to be on staff
at a church, and...
now that I'm here I don't want
to sound like I'm at a pulpit.
Otherwise, you know,
nobody'll come by.
Just leave that box of snacks
on your desk.
Word'll travel.
They'll come.
Oh, I saw a glimpse
of your delivery today.
Ma told me to bring it.
Apparently went through
my nightstand to make sure.
Ah, one of those moms
that loves their daughters...
- I hate those.
- Ah, more like one
that thinks getting me back
on track is her job, not mine.
You on that, Gonzalez?
Take that as a yes.
I have a son.
Wow, look at that handsome guy.
You, uh, talk to him yet,
He's three,
so not much of a talker.
So, does he take after you
or his father?
Huh! You mean the guy
that saw the double lines
on the pregnancy test,
left and never looked back?
That guy?
No, he does not get that title.
And no, he wasn't my husband,
so save the lecture.
My mama got that covered.
Well, he's a gift from God.
That's all that matters now.
It was long but fine.
I mean, long.
Your prayer.
Sounded like you cared.
Hey, Chaplain,
you almost finished?
So, talked to my family
the other day.
Sounds like yours and mine
have been hanging out.
Well, it sounds like Tonya
would love to hear from you.
What's your deal, man?
- What do you mean?
- I mean,
messing with other people's
lives just part
of your job description
or something?
I mean, kind of.
Okay, well, my marriage...
is none of your business.
You don't know anything
about me
or my family.
I know your family loves you.
And I know they'd love
to hear it back.
You know what? I'm-I'm-I'm
gonna tell you how it works.
'Cause you never been
to Iraq before,
so you don't know
what it's like to come home.
You... ain't never
gonna be the same.
And neither is your little
picture-perfect marriage
that you probably think
you have.
Stay out of my business.
Tell you what.
You call, they hang up...
I'll never bother you again.
That a promise?
Yeah, that's a promise.
Hey. Hey, it's, uh...
It's me.
- Michael?
- Yeah. No, it was...
It was a different number.
It's a...
I'm on the chaplain's phone,
- Our neighbor.
- Yeah, the neighbor.
One... more.
And... I think I got it.
Looks great, guys.
I will get those proofs to you next week, and...
- Okay.
- Yeah, they look great, everything.
- Thank you.
Excuse me.
I think I saw you at the base
when our husbands deployed.
- Oh.
- I'm Heather Turner.
- Hi. I'm Amanda.
- Hi. Who is this?
This is Alexis.
She's so sweet.
Most of the time...
she won't stop crying.
She knows her daddy's gone.
She was up all night,
so I was up all night.
I had to take work off today,
which I can't afford.
Amanda, I don't know about you,
but this is by far
the hardest thing
I've ever done.
It is okay to feel overwhelmed.
You're not the only one
who feels this way, I promise.
You-you know, um,
my number is on the Readiness
Group contact sheet
if you ever want to talk
or hang or, you know, whatever.
I'm pregnant.
I don't know
how I'm supposed to tell him.
Med Unit
Bravo, I need all medics.
I've got four wounded inbound.
- Two green critical...
- Hey, let's get
another stretcher over here.
All medics to the hospital.
Severe chest injury.
That your blood, Corporal?
They hit us with two RPGs, sir.
- Let's go! Let's go!
- First grenade missed,
but second one hit Cosgrove's
vehicle, and we, uh...
Who exactly is injured,
- Cosgrove, Mitchell, and...
- Abdomen wound.
Get her down!
Hurry up, please, hurry up!
His two daughters, sir.
Hey, who's gonna take this one?
We couldn't save her, Chaplain.
So I guess, you know...
you do whatever it is you do.
What's your name?
It's Bradley.
Lance Bradley.
I'm sure you did
everything you could.
Get me a gurney out here now!
I got to get ahold of my wife.
- No, you need, you need to lay down, sir.
- My wife.
Lay down, sir.
Three more. Call the coroner.
Got it.
Tragically, officials confirm
two soldiers from Fort Stewart
were killed by Iraqi insurgents
today while conducting a patrol
during combat operations
in Baghdad.
The troops were part
of the deployment that left
Fort Stewart in April
as part of the troop surge.
- I am... so sorry.
- Oh, God. It's okay.
I wasn't thinking.
I should have called.
No, it's okay. It's okay.
I'm just so relieved
that you are not a chaplain
in uniform right now.
Oh. Okay. So we're up?
The notifying chaplain
and casualty officer are
at the house now,
and we're next
till family arrives.
Hello. Tanner residence.
- Hey, bug.
- Daddy!
It's so good
to hear your voice.
I miss you so much.
I miss you, too.
Is everything okay?
Mommy looked worried when she
left with Miss Tonya, and...
I'm okay... I promise.
Are you wearing
your special armor?
I sure am, bug.
Are you?
Every day.
When I remember.
Give everyone a great big hug
for me, okay?
Bye, baby.
Bye, Daddy.
Okay. Here goes.
You ready to do this?
Oh, Lord,
we have to do this well.
We've got this.
You okay, Chaplain?
- Yes, sir.
- Good.
'Cause there are some folks
around here
that could probably use
a visit right about now.
Sorry, sir.
Standing here now, I'm...
not quite sure
what I should say.
I'm-I'm no expert
in your line of work, but...
how about you just leave
that Master's of Divinity
back in your tent, and...
just go give a few boys
your heart?
As it stands now,
it'd probably go a long way.
Third platoon, Alpha?
You found it, Chaplain.
Come on in.
Well, I'm sorry
to interrupt you guys.
This is my first memorial here,
so I could use your help
if you don't mind telling me
about your friends.
Civvies were all around us
as we came off the last bridge.
Two blasts, one right after
another behind us,
and we ran back, you know,
pulled, pulled Mitchell
out of the fire, but
he was already gone.
And Cosgrove
was already inside,
getting the two girls out.
The flames just took him.
Mitchell was engaged.
Cosgrove's wife is pregnant.
I've been with them both
since basic.
And when my fiance
decided that
military life wasn't for her,
those two guys
didn't leave my side
till we shipped out.
Probably kept me
from losing it.
What'd you do
with the girl, Chaplain?
Medics finally took her.
So, uh...
What, do you have
a Bible verse to explain
why a girl's life was taken
before it even began?
No, I do not.
But I have daughters, too.
And the thought of losing them
is beyond what I can imagine.
Yeah, I have a daughter, too.
So what?
You're peddling a God
that'll take mine tomorrow,
maybe yours the next day.
Look, you're angry.
I get it. I mean,
we all rage at death, right?
I think
there's a reason for that.
I think... it's because
we were made for life.
And I believe in a God who came
to rescue us from death
and bring us into life.
Who gave us all life
to begin with.
For a specific time
and a specific purpose.
Until He chooses
to bring us home with Him.
You want to know
what that little girl said
when we first picked her up?
She told me
through the translator.
She just wanted to live
to do two things...
fly in an airplane
and climb a mountain... be closer to God.
Little innocent girl didn't do
anything to deserve to die.
She wanted
to be closer to God.
And she believed in a God
that didn't do anything
to save her life.
You got a Bible verse for that?
I wish I did.
I hear you.
I do.
Sorry about your friends.
And I'm sorry
about your fiance.
Thanks, Chap.
Uh... hi, babe.
Man, I hope
there's never a reason
for you to watch this video.
But if you are,
I suppose there's no use
in covering that up.
I mean, I feel so wrong
not sharing everything
that's going on over here,
like we do at home.
At ease.
So, how much for the jerky?
- 20 bucks a pop.
- Ooh!
Smart man.
I'd clean you out.
Unless you do that.
Then they're free.
Um, you know, I was a bit rough
on you last night.
Sorry about that.
No, it's fine.
Kind of comes
with the territory.
Oh, that's, uh, Sam, six,
Elie, eight,
and-and Heather
holding Meribeth,
- who is all of... ten months.
- Yeah.
Daughter Alexis, wife Amanda.
- She's cute.
- Who just told me
five minutes ago we got
to come up with another name.
Man, that's great.
Is there something
on your mind, Bradley?
You said something
the other day.
You said, uh, God gives us life
for a specific time
and purpose,
and then takes us home safely.
Home safe in heaven.
All right, see,
that's the part that got me.
All right, so let's say
I buy in
and something happens to me,
and I'm safe in heaven.
Where does that leave
my wife and kids?
I mean, if there's no guarantee
of safety here,
what happens to them?
Do my kids go off the rails
without a father?
Does Amanda lose it,
let some drunk loser
move in, start hurting them,
making their lives
a living hell
while I'm all cozy
and warm in heaven?
Tell me my kids won't ever
go through what I did.
When my dad left,
I knew he wasn't coming back.
I mean, he said
he stopped loving my mom,
but it felt clear as day
that he stopped loving me, too.
Okay, is that it?
That's not helping.
I didn't have a dad...
but I had... I still have
another Father.
One who has never left me.
One who has
never abandoned me.
One who won't abandon you
orAmanda orAlexis
or that new little one
you got coming.
No matter what comes next.
All right.
Don't get any ideas.
I just like free stuff.
Mm, the kids made me
a cake for our anniversary,
at least, so that was nice.
Kids remembered, and I didn't.
Don't worry, I saved a piece
to put in
your next care package.
Um, this is a wild idea, but
would you be up to coordinating
some Christmas stockings
for the soldiers?
You could fill them
with gifts and snacks
like you've been sending me.
Yeah. Yeah, sure.
How-how many do you need?
Uh, give or take, a thousand.
So, reinforcements then?
Um... I guess I could get
some other wives involved.
I could actually, like,
turn it into a community thing.
Get some churches
and schools in on it.
That's a great idea.
Man, can you believe
school starts in a week?
No, I can't.
How are they?
They're good.
Sam was so excited
about getting
the green belt in karate.
Wait. Already?
Uh, yeah. I posted those pics,
like, two weeks ago.
Right. Shoot, I... I got to
look at that thing more.
Babe... is everything okay?
You just...
you sound different.
Uh, no, no, I'm fine.
Sorry. Uh, really,
it's just...
...maybe a little harder
than I expected here.
What's the plan,
what's the plan?
Ain't no time to waste,
gotta do it while I can...
If you don't give your all,
it don't matter if you ran...
For the win!
All right,
gentlemen, that's game.
Shower up...
we're moving out in 30.
Next time,
next time I got Chappy.
All right.
Uh-huh, uh-huh.
I told you I was open, man.
Yeah, but we didn't need two,
boss, we needed three for 21.
Oh, come on, that was
a lucky shot and you know it...
- unless you had a little bit of help.
- Mm, maybe.
Yeah. Come on.
Hey, before you head out, uh,
I've been meaning
to give you this.
Yeah, dude, I-I-I'm good.
I don't do lucky charms.
It's not about luck.
- Look, if it don't stop a bullet
or diffuse a bomb,
I don't need it, okay?
But, look, if it makes you
feel any better,
I... I've been talking
to Tonya a lot more.
Yeah, yeah, don't get excited,
all right?
It's not that deep and stuff.
Look, I don't know
what that wife of yours
has got her thinking
you're gonna do for me, but...
she keeps telling me
to talk to you.
So, uh...
mm, good talk.
Thank you.
- Was a lucky shot.
- That's great.
Out here,
you put your lives on the line
every second of every day.
You risk everything
to make this world on Earth
a better place.
And let me tell you something,
God is no stranger
to the battlefield.
And that's why I'm here today.
The body of our Lord
broken for you.
The blood of our Lord
shed for you.
Long day, huh?
You're doing a great job,
You know that, right?
Does it matter?
If I'm a failure as a mom?
It's true.
A few months
after Colby was born,
I started finding any excuse
not to go home.
Acting like it was
to provide for him,
I got so used to it
that I realize now that I don't
even know where to start
to show up for that boy.
And I want to, and...
I got news for you.
We can work on that.
Sam, hurry.
Come on, come on.
Let's go. Hurry.
Hurry. We need
to pray for Daddy.
Dear God,
please protect Daddy,
wherever he is right now.
- Please?
- All right, guys,
let's go.
Let's go! Now.
This is Oscar 2!
We are pinned down
on the northeast corner!
Head for the bunker!
I don't see a bunker! Over!
- I'm coming to you!
- Chaplain, when I move,
you move!
Right now, God, watch over him.
Keep Daddy safe
from the enemy now.
- Guys?
- Mommy,
- hurry!
- Okay, okay.
All right,
we got to move! We got to move.
Get up! Get up!
Go, go! Come on!
Come on. Get up!
Get up! We've got to move!
Hey, hey, hey,
hey, hey, you're gonna be okay.
Neighbor, neighbor.
You're gonna be okay,
all right?
All right.
Props for the help, Major.
And bring Daddy home safe,
And Mia and Nia's daddy, too.
In Jesus' name, amen.
I have never seen
Elie pray like that.
It was intense,
like she sensed
something specific.
What? What is it?
I'm gonna give that girl
a list of things to pray for...
that's what.
There was a mortar attack.
- What? Wait, when? I...
- Yeah.
- Are they okay?
- W-Well, they were visiting
other bases for officer...
- Tonya, are they okay?
- Yes.
Yes. They are okay.
Why didn't he tell me?
Oh, girl,
something like that happens,
- your man is busy.
- No,
I know, but he...
I know.
I just feel
like there's something more
that's happening between us.
Between you two?
Honey, trust me.
It's not between you two.
It's between you two
and that war.
Thanks, I think.
- Hey, I'll be right back.
- Okay.
- Hi. I thought you would be here.
- Hey.
I heard you guys needed help
with the stockings
- for the soldiers.
- Well, yeah, but, come on,
- you got your plate full.
- I know.
Honestly, I just kind of wanted
to have a conversation
about something
other than Elmo.
I totally hear you.
Hey, come with me.
I want to introduce you to somebody, okay?
- All right.
Take this one!
Don't leave me!
Starting to see
a pattern here, sir.
I leave, you taking
silly photos or looking at 'em,
and on and on it goes.
How much
can you miss somebody, huh?
Oh, don't look now,
but I think the chaplain
might need a pep talk
of his own.
Maybe later. Right now
the chair is all yours.
What do you mean?
Special assignment.
You said it was
Colby's favorite, right?
Hit record on the remote
whenever you're ready and...
read to your boy.
I don't know what to say.
Don't just read.
Pretend he's sitting
right there in your lap.
'Cause when your mom plays it
for him,
he'll feel like he is.
Hi, Colby!
Mama misses you so much,
my boy.
And I miss you
more than anything
in the whole wide world.
I wanted to read you a story,
one we both love.
"When you arise
"with sleepy eyes,
"my smiling face you see.
"I love you high.
"I love you low.
"I love you deep.
"I love you wide.
I love you this much."
I noticed you haven't updated
the photos
on the website lately.
Well, seemed like you weren't
really looking at the pictures,
You there, babe?
Uh, yeah.
Just, you know, cooking dinner.
And the kids are in a mood.
We lost three more soldiers
Guess that means Tonya and I
have our work cut out for us.
Mom, Sam's using your camera!
Sam, put it down!
I'm taking pictures for Daddy!
Guys! I can't hear your dad!
Oh, hey, um,
did the stockings arrive?
They-They're amazing, babe.
I can't wait for Christmas.
My parents will be here.
Still can't believe you won't.
You know what, honey, I can't...
I got to...
I can't talk right now, okay?
No, no, I get it.
I get it. It's okay.
I get it. Totally fine...
Um... Bye!
We're going to be transporting
former Sunni insurgents
fighting with us now
against al-Qaeda.
We are not the only ones
who know.
So, from Al Sakhar province
Bravo will neutralize
opposition out front
forAlpha running escort
to get these civilian forces
in for training
to Patrol Base Hawkes here.
Any questions?
Sir, before we head off,
mind if I send us out?
Knock it out of the park.
Hey. Lance.
Fuel for the road.
Oh, what, you're not
gonna charge me this time?
Thank you.
- You're welcome.
- And, uh,
you know, thanks for what
you're doing here, too.
I think it's really helping.
For me, at least.
Yeah, man, of course.
Oh, check it out... I, uh...
I've been taking this with me
on all my trips out of Falcon.
I must say,
for such a tiny little book,
there sure is a lot to read.
Dang, there's a lot
that I don't understand in it.
- You know, I can help you with that.
- Yeah?
- Bradley, one. Turner, two with me.
All right, hey, we'll see you out there.
- Yeah.
Hey, uh, why don't you
hold on to this?
What the heck is that?
Yeah, you're a closer, huh?
It's just a reminder that
you don't have to be afraid.
- God's got your back.
- All right, moving out!
All right.
I told you,
I just like free stuff.
Bradley, let's go!
We're about five klicks north
of Al Sakhar. Over.
Roger that, Alpha.
Stevie Wonder drives
better than you, Carter.
Hey, Turner, doesn't the
Good Book say
"Be kind to your neighbor"?
- Uh-huh.
- Sitting next to you,
Major, that makes me
your neighbor.
No, no, no, no, no.
Tell me I did not do it, I...
Forgot my ChapStick!
Gonna have to bum yours,
Stevie. Come on.
- No. Nobody bums ChapStick.
- Come on, man, you were just
talking about being kind
to your neighbor.
Look, look, I'll pay you
for it, all right?
Just, m-my lips
are cracked bad.
Tell you what.
We pass a Walmart,
I'll stop, okay?
I've got three balls
for a dollar.
Three balls for a dollar, and you can do it!
- Come on.
You can do it!
I won it! I won it!
Hey, can we take Sam and Elie
- to the maze, Mommy?
- Um... - Please...
- Go ahead, sure, we'll wait at the front entrance,
- where the funnel cake booth is.
- Oh, Lord help us.
- Hey, guys, stay together, okay?
- Yeah, be careful.
- Um, it's over here. Okay.
- Over here.
Looks like our objective,
gents. Eleven o'clock.
I got one male.
One male.
That's our escort.
We're looking for a 12-pax bus.
Bradley, what you see up top?
Looking good.
Rooftop's clear.
Ho! We got two on a rooftop,
one o'clock.
- One of 'em has a cell.
- One o'clock.
Come on, faster! Let's go!
No sign of a 12-pax, gentlemen.
I think we got a problem.
Stay alert.
Bradley, give me an update.
Yeah, bogeys are gone.
Oh, hey, look,
there's our bus. Ha.
Where'd our escort go?
he's gone.
Get down! Get down!
Bradley! Take them out!
My gun's jammed!
Get out of here now!
Mom! Come quick!
It's Elie! She can't breathe!
This way! This way!
Call a medic now!
We got multiple shooters!
Lance, watch your head.
Whit, get us out of here!
Elie? Elie?
Elie? Elie? Baby.
Can you breathe?
Can you breathe?
Where's your inhaler?
Where is it?
Did you see an inhaler?
A little plastic thing?
Did you see an inhaler?
Where is it? Okay.
Okay, come on.
Come on. Let's go.
Okay. Sam, where's the exit?!
Honey, wake up. Please.
Honey, wake up.
Oh, God.
Where's the exit?!
Contact left! Engaging!
Whit, punch it!
I got you.
Where is it?
Can someone get me...
Do you know where the exit is?
Where's the exit?
Whew, boys!
It's okay, honey.
It's gonna be okay.
It'll be okay, honey.
Hey, Chappy, you can relax now.
Yeah, I'm good.
- Found your ChapStick.
- Oh-ho-ho-ho!
Oh, Chappy,
you are the man!
Mmm. Mmm, ah.
Almost died
with cracked lips. Ha-ha!
Oh, that ain't even right.
All right,
Whitsett, take us home.
Chaplain! Chaplain Turner.
Falcon's trying to reach you.
It's an emergency at home, sir.
- Darren?
- Heather?
What took you so long?
I'm sorry, babe. I-I was...
I was off-base,
and they couldn't reach me.
Oh. It was horrible. Um...
- our little Elie...
- Elie?
E-Elie? What happened to Elie?
Is she okay?
Yes. Yeah.
She's fine. She's fine.
She's stable now, thank God.
Okay, what happened?
We were at the, uh,
at the Fall Festival,
and the kids
went through the maze,
and apparently
there was hay in there,
and I can't believe
I didn't check.
- Where was her inhaler?
- I don't...
I don't know. I c...
can't really ask her right now.
I'm sorry, it...
She's okay.
That's all that matters.
- How are you?
- I am not okay.
I can't stop shaking.
I really thought we lost her.
But we didn't.
- She's okay.
- Look, I know.
I know, honey.
This is just, like...
this was, like,
the hardest day by far
not to have you here.
Yeah, it sounds brutal.
Th-There's someone there
with you, right?
Yeah. Yeah, I mean,
Tonya's here with the kids,
but, you know, she's not you.
She's not Elie's dad,
and I just, I...
Babe, b-babe,
I understand, okay?
...feel so alone
in this right now,
and I just need...
Babe, I get it! Okay?
Uh, what was that? I'm not...
I was just trying to tell you
that I... that I miss you.
Well, if you knew
what happened to me today,
- if you had any idea...
- Okay.
Then, um, why don't you
give me an idea for once?
I'm all ears.
I have to... I got to go.
Darren, I just got you
on the phone!
I just got...
I'm sorry, I got to go.
Yeah, no, I mean, I have to go
check on Elie, too,
so I got to go, too.
Okay. Keep me posted. I love...
All right, all right.
Lieutenant Colonel Jacobsen
sprang to his sleigh
to unload a few rounds
of his M249 SAW.
And the insurgents ran away
from his Yuletide shock
and awe.
Come on now! Come on!
You know where it's at.
But I heard him exclaim
as he drove out of sight,
"Merry Christmas to all,
and to all a good night!"
Ho ho ho ho!
Ho ho ho! Merry Christmas.
Merry Christmas.
- Troops! Troops!
- Yeah.
Thank you. Thank you all
for your hard work,
your sacrifice,
and your service.
- Hooah?
- Hooah!
Come and get it!
Merry Christmas. Here you go.
Merry Christmas.
Thank you, troops.
Merry Christmas. Ho ho ho...
Oh, thank you.
Oh, my soul
Oh, how you worry
Oh, how you're weary
From fearing
you lost control
This was the one thing
You didn't see coming
And no one
would blame you, though
If you cried in private
If you tried
to hide it away
So no one knows
No one will see
if you stop believing
Oh, my soul
You are not alone
There's a place
where fear has to face
The God you know
One more day
He will make a way
Let Him show you how
You can lay this down
Oh, my soul...
Hey, Chaplain.
This a good time?
Hey, Lance, come on in.
- How you doing?
- Good.
- How are you?
- I'm good. Good to see you.
Uh, for your generosity.
I heard it was your wife
who set me up
with all those pictures
of Elijah.
- Right?
- Yeah.
Man, can't wait to see my boy.
Won't be long now,
brother. Wow.
More beef jerky.
- I love it.
- I know, right?
- Really?
- Had to resist the whole way.
What's that?
What you got going there?
- Easter service?
- Yep.
You coming, man?
You kidding me?
I am a genuine, 100%
bona fide believer, baby.
I'm all in.
Of course I'm coming.
- All in?
- Mm-hmm.
You just gave me a great idea.
Far more than me,
you men and women know
what it is
to offer up your lives
for the good of others.
And one of the many
challenges here
and at home
is that unless you've done it,
actually lived it,
it's hard to appreciate
what it takes
to make that sacrifice.
Well, you know who else
actually lived it?
Who willingly
sacrificed His life
so that others could live?
He came, He laid it down,
and He rose again
for me and for you
so that you and I can live.
And if that act
doesn't give you hope
and confidence
in a God that loves you
and is willing
to do anything for you,
I don't know what will.
And that's what this day,
Easter, is all about.
For all of us.
Now, if I've learned anything
about you guys,
it's that you know how
to go all in.
And there is no better day
than Easter to go all in
for Jesus.
Army Specialist Lance Bradley,
I baptize you in the name
of the Father, the Son
and the Holy Spirit.
Oh, my soul
You are not alone
There's a place
where fear has to face
The God you know.
All right, gather round.
Let's go!
All right.
Eyes alert.
Scan the rooftops, windows.
Watch the road,
grandmothers, kids,
livestock, bumps in the field.
Follow the ROE, stay alive.
- Hooah?
- Hooah!
All right, hey, uh, Chaplain.
Why don't you, uh,
why don't you do what you do?
- Give it to 'em, Chaplain.
- Here we go.
"The proud
"have laid their snares,
"and along the path,
they have set traps
"to catch me.
"But You...
You are my strong deliverer."
- All right, Chaplain.
- Yep.
"You shield my head
in the day of battle."
- That's right.
- Mm-hmm.
"Do not grant the wicked
their desires.
"Do not let
their plans succeed.
Let's get it!
Oh, hey, Chaplain.
You're not coming. What gives?
Not today.
I got a bunch of meetings.
They want me
to start packing up.
Hey, man, you don't need me.
You got something better.
See you tonight.
Yes, sir.
Bit too real?
Yeah, even for me.
Didn't want to sugarcoat it.
This is gonna have to wait
a few years.
About ten before Sam reads it.
And I am so glad that Heather
never has to watch these.
You know,
I've been worried about you.
And before I forget,
thank you.
You being here
has made a big difference
in where I'm heading
when I get back.
As in...?
Oh, I don't know.
Thinking maybe I won't be
a half bad mom, after all.
Probably won't fight
my mom as much.
Wouldn't mean you want
to start carrying one of these,
would it?
I'm gonna miss you, Chaplain.
You, too.
Chicken Milanese.
- I don't even know what that is.
I don't even know
about how you say that.
We need to take a walk,
Just got the call
that Alpha and Bravo
were on their final
transition patrol,
and they hit an IED.
All due respect, sir,
get to the point.
I'm sorry.
I know he was a friend.
We lost Lance Bradley.
Anyone else?
Man nearest the blast,
Michael Lewis,
went to pull Lance out
of the wreckage,
and there was
a second explosion.
From what I'm told,
he's gonna make it, but...
I'm not too sure
about his legs.
But you have told us
that we do not
have to be afraid.
You're strong.
You're brave.
You are brave,
and you will weather this.
You will weather this, okay?
- God.
- Okay, okay. Okay.
Chaplain Turner,
sorry you lost your dad, too.
But believe me,
he had to love you.
And he'd be proud,
as proud
as any father could be.
P.S. Enjoy the jerky.
You can pay me later.
Medevac's here, Chaplain.
Ready in five.
"The Lord is
the strength of my life;
"of whom shall I be afraid?
"I remain confident of this,
and I will see the goodness
of the Lord..."
" the land of the living."
You got this, Chaplain.
We are blessed
to be among the living,
but going home,
we must prepare
for new challenges.
Anger. Depression.
Even ideas that somehow
not going on would be better.
Reject these enemies
and ask for help.
Just ask.
Remember your armor,
guard your spirit,
and you will prevail.
Welcome to Baghdad, people,
and your first day at
Forward Operating Base Falcon.
Today you join our fight
to destroy al-Qaeda
and her offspring,
to stabilize this nation
and keep America safe.
You see him?
Mmm. You guys.
When did you get so big, huh?
Hi, baby. Hi. Hi.
- Hey. Hey, Meribeth.
- Hey, Meribeth.
- You see Daddy?
- Look at you.
I love you.
Look, your ribbon, Dad.
Yellow means "welcome home."
Okay, honey,
when you're done with that,
- can you get your sister?
- Okay.
Darren, dinner's ready!
Thanks, bud.
Can you get the bread?
- Uh, yes, ma'am.
- Darren!
Hey. Did you hear me?
Dinner's ready.
Oh, yeah, Tonya and the girls
left last night
to join Michael at Walter Reed.
You're gonna be okay.
Babe. Sorry. I...
Dinner's ready.
Did I take up too much
of the bed?
Is there anything
I can do for you?
Just let me stay awake.
That is really good news.
I'm so glad
that you're doing okay.
Maybe I'm still in shock.
I don't know, but, yeah, okay.
How about you?
a-another time.
Hey, just keep me posted,
Uh... I will.
I love you girls so much.
I'm so sorry.
Look, I promise you both,
I-I'm gonna do things right
this time.
I mean it.
I'm gonna be
the kind of man that...
I'm gonna be the kind of man
that all three of you
can be proud of.
It's okay, Daddy.
We already are.
And to the Republic
for which it stands,
one nation,
under God,
with liberty
and justice for all.
Take a seat, everyone. Thank you.
- Hi.
- Hi, hi. Sorry.
- Hey, Colby.
- How you doing?
- So sorry we're late.
It's just a little separation
anxiety happening today.
- Colby.
- Oh, no.
Not-not him. Me.
Oh, Mom.
Oh, Mom's gonna be great.
- Isn't she? Come on in, Colby.
- Yeah.
I'm glad you're here today.
You know, it wouldn't
have been the same thing
without you being here.
Darren? What's going on?
- Is everything okay?
- Shh!
- Is there someone outside?
- I said stop talking.
You're scaring me.
Baby. Baby, talk to me.
What's going on?
- Don't touch me!
- Okay.
Please, just go to bed.
It's 3:00
in the morning, Darren.
Where have you been?
One of the guys at the base
had a crisis.
You missed dinner
and bedtime again.
Are you kidding me with this?
- Shh! I just got the kids down!
- Does anyone ever run
this thing?
- Let me see that.
- No.
I'm going to the base
to get stitches.
Fine, yeah, whatever.
Walk away.
I've been doing just fine on
my own for the past 17 months.
I'm sorry, what-what
is that supposed to mean?
- I'm back, I'm here.
- No.
No, you're not... here.
Not with me.
Not with the kids.
I've been patient...
and compassionate.
I've given you space.
I have run interference
with the kids to protect them.
- Oh, God, protect them from what?
- I don't know!
That's the point, because I
don't recognize you like this.
You're angry...
and distant...
and mean.
And-and what kills me
is that I know you know
how to show up, because
Tonya won't stop talking
about how you keep
showing up for Michael.
'Cause he's been
through something.
- I've been through something!
- Really? What? Hmm?
Oh, I don't know,
maybe just raising
our three small children alone,
And on top of that, Darren,
I have been holding
wailing, sobbing wives,
mothers, and their babies
in my arms.
I have seen and I have felt
their hearts torn to shreds,
and you don't think that
I've been through something?
- So you want to make this a competition?
- No! I just...
I want to know why.
I want to know why
you somehow have it in you
to show up for those men
when you refuse to do it
for your own wife and kids.
Because those men need me!
I need you!
Your children need you.
You don't get it.
You will never get it.
I can't even look at you
right now, and I can't do this.
I need stitches.
I see the word "dead."
But who is
What in the world
are you doing?
We just wanted to read it.
- It doesn't matter what you wanted.
- But I gave it to you so we...
- So it's mine!
And you can read it
when I say you can.
What is going on?!
What did you do to them!
- I didn't do anything!
- Please, don't fight
- 'cause of us.
- I told them
to stay out of my stuff!
Enough, Darren! Get out!
Go! You are no longer welcome
in this house.
I am not leaving my family.
You need help.
And I can't give it to you.
Go to the base
and get some help.
Get out!
I mean, by the end,
I couldn't even stand
to listen to myself.
Dishing out faith as reality
just kept cutting
the legs out from under me.
Oh, what is wrong with me?
What if Michael were here?
Relax, Darren.
He's not here.
And you wouldn't have said it
if he were here.
Wouldn't I?
I can't believe half the things
I said to my family.
that Lance and Michael
started to buy into,
and now one's dead
and one's a dad
with his leg blown off.
Why would Michael
ever believe me now?
Let me just see
if you hear what I just heard.
stopped liking hearing you
talk about God.
And you were afraid reality
would undercut your message
and Michael's ability
to believe in you.
Give me a break.
You know what I meant.
I think I do.
And like any of us who have
tried to help anyone trust God,
the enemy got you
trusting you and...
No, I trusted in God
to protect those men,
- and He didn't!
- No.
No, you trusted in God
to do what you thought
He ought to do.
You show me a believer,
and I'll show you someone
who's done the exact
same thing, or is about to.
All of us have doubted, son.
I'm not sure there is faith
without some doubt.
Had a number of vets work
for us in the past, but...
never a chaplain.
After 15 months in the desert,
are you sure you want to...
come work in the dirt?
It's a different kind
of dirt, sir.
Different kind of dirt.
I'll never forget what Michael
did, trying to save him.
And Michael would do it again.
Ten times over.
Especially where
his heart's at now.
It's so...
It's gonna be okay.
Oh. Don't worry about me.
Why not?
Pain is pain.
And ours doesn't make yours
any less real.
What is it?
The three of us
are just carrying
so much of it, you know?
Having a real hard time
seeing God's goodness
in all of it.
Here's what I know, honey.
That IED returned
my Michael to me
and to our girls.
He's a different man now.
And if that's not evidence
that there's a good God
working here,
bringing us something better
through pain...
what is?
So all I got to do is trust
He knows what He's doing.
Which better be true
because it's all that's
keeping this girl together.
I think the kids understand
that you're sorry
about the way you treated them.
But as for the two of you,
I'd like to recommend
you start reliving
good memories.
Remind one another
of what you had
before you try to build
something new.
Heather, can you pick one?
Sure. Um...
I guess the day we met.
I was taking photos on campus,
and he drove by, staring at me
and crashed his motorcycle
straight into my shot
of the chrysanthemums.
Ruined them both.
But then turned out later
he was the guest speaker
at my campus ministries, and...
I saw this man
with a heart for God.
What you got?
Well, this is where we are.
Anything that truly matters...
Memories are just...
I mean, every time
I try to think back,
the... the things that I don't
want to remember take over.
Like there's... there's a wall
in my timeline...
That's normal, Darren.
It's normal.
And, Heather,
post-traumatic stress is a...
it's a mind inhibitor.
You'll want to think
of one thing,
and it gets slammed
by something
you don't want
to ever see again.
It takes time...
and intentional rebuilding
of tools and muscles
that we use
to control our thoughts.
- I'm pretty much out of time.
- Darren...
I'm not putting a clock
on this; that's not fair.
Well, what do
you want me to say?
I was angry.
At God.
At myself.
Afraid of the pain.
Afraid that I was some imposter
because... my faith
had let us down.
So just tell me
that stuff, then.
anger, pain...
I can handle that stuff.
I can.
What I can't handle
is the distance.
You shutting me out
and pushing me away.
I mean, that's what hur...
that's what hurts.
That's what scares me to death.
You're my best friend,
and you've been treating me
like a stranger,
and I don't get it. Why?
Why the distance
and the silence with me
when you can just come in here
and lay it all out for him?
Because I'm ashamed.
I know I'm failing you.
And I want to make it better,
but I just...
I don't know how.
I loved those men,
and He took 'em away,
and I'm supposed to get that
and be okay, but I'm not.
I'm terrified...
...because I love you
and the kids so much more.
Well, that was fun.
Some, uh...
Light reading
and viewing material.
When you're up for it.
Thank you.
Still living
on your knees, I see.
Hey, man.
Didn't hear you coming.
Yeah, well...
set it to stealth mode.
Standard military issue.
I'm glad you're back.
Yeah, see, that's...
that's the problem.
I'm back, but...
my neighbor's gone.
Chaplain Rodgers
has been helpful,
helping me see
what I lost track of.
Your armor, brother,
that's what.
It's a bit more complicated
than that.
Okay. So, uh...
why are you so angry?
Yeah, our wives are friends,
man, I heard all about it.
Well, then you
don't need me to tell you.
- Hey, I'm not the angry one.
- Come on, man.
- What, are you angry at your wife?
- No.
- Or at me?
- No.
Well, then who? Yourself?
- Darn right.
- No, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah.
That's not it.
Now, come on, Chaplain,
"belt of truth" me up.
All right, 'cause you been in
my face since the day we met.
It's a coin for a con man.
'Cause you can't tell me,
that's what you are.
I'm afraid, all right,
of exactly...
- Oh, I didn't ask if you were afraid!
I asked why you're so angry!
Are you... are you kidding me?
Look at you.
Look at Lance.
Look at me.
God is my life.
And what was He thinking, huh?
Now we're getting somewhere.
Listen to me, brother.
When I picked that piece
of tin up out the dirt,
I never thought that
it promised I'd come back
in one piece...
neither did Lance.
A few minutes after the blast,
Lance knew
he was slipping away.
His head was bleeding,
he was fading.
But you know
what he said to me?
He said he was glad
he wore... His helmet.
Yeah. Yeah, he wasn't talking
about government issue.
His helmet of salvation.
You gave that to him, Darren.
All right? I...
I watched him go
with a peaceful smile
on his face.
Because of you,
he was prepared.
Because of you, I got prepared.
The only reason why
I'm still here is because...
I got to do things right
this time.
So, no, look...
don't you go losing your faith
on account of me and Lance.
I don't want that on my head.
So, listen, um...
what you gonna do
about that woman of yours?
When was the last time
you gave her a call?
I know your heart
been broke again
Oh, oh, oh, oh
I know your prayers
ain't been answered yet
Oh, oh, oh, oh
I know you're feeling like
You got nothing left
Well, lift your head,
it ain't over yet
It ain't over yet, so
- Move
- Keep walkin'
Soldier, keep movin' on
- Move
- Keep walkin'
Until the morning comes
- Move
- Keep walkin'
Soldier, keep movin' on
and lift your head
It ain't over yet,
it ain't over yet
Echoin' inside your head
Are the words
that your sweet mama said
Between high stakes
and pump fakes
You're feeling like you
can't buy a break
I can hold your hand,
but I can't turn your eyes
To freedom
I know your heart
been broke again
Oh, oh, oh, oh
I know you're feeling
like you got nothing left
Well, lift your head,
it ain't over yet
It ain't over yet.
I especially love
photographing people,
capturing expressions
and smiles,
memories, moments that they'll
never live exactly
the same way ever again,
and just saving them forever.
Because you never know,
when you take someone's photo,
what it might mean
to someone someday.
And that's why
I love being a photographer.
Thank you so much
for listening.
Thank you, Mrs. Turner.
And next to share,
we have Elie's dad,
Darren Turner.
Thank you for accepting
my invitation, Mr. Turner.
It's my pleasure.
Um... hi, guys.
Uh, so I work
at the Digger O'Dell Nursery,
and I'm in charge of the trees
and plants and flowers.
Like... chrysanthemums.
Until a few months ago, I was
a chaplain for the U.S. Army.
A, uh, true soldier
feels so deeply
that good people deserve
to be safe and free,
that he is willing
to risk losing
the most valuable of things
just to go and help them.
And every soldier who serves in
a war comes back with a medal.
It's just that
sometimes you can't see it,
'cause it's on the inside.
I don't feel like a hero,
'cause to me...
the true heroes
are the soldiers' families
who also have medals
on the inside
pinned to their hearts.
Like I know my family does.
Heather, please...
know that I love you,
and I have
since the first day we met.
When I ruined those flowers
you were taking pictures of.
Chrysanthemums, right?
Who the heck
names flowers, anyway?
I miss you more
than you can imagine.
And love you just the same.
Oh, God.
I am hurting.
But so is the man that I love.
Please forgive me
for judging
what I don't understand
and for leaning on him when
I should be leaning on You.
Sam, look in the backyard!
- Elie!
- We all need
- Come on.
- A little honesty
- Mom!
- You are loved
If your heart's
in a thousand pieces...
It's Fort Bumblefoot, Mom.
- Did you make this?
- No, I didn't.
Go, go, go.
Go check it out.
Just look up,
know you are loved
When it feels like
something's missing
If it hurts,
but you can't find healing
Just look up,
know you are loved
Just look up, know
- Oh!
- You are loved...
Hey, get in here.
Isn't this amazing?
Hey, guys, I need your help
with something.
You are loved
If your heart's
in a thousand pieces...
Hey, Turner.
Delivery guy's out.
Can you make it
to Freedom Park Gazebo by 6:00?
Just look up,
know you are loved.
What is all this?
You did all this?
I wanted to do
something special for you.
So I enjoyed
some light reading
and viewing materials
the other night.
Babe, I thought I knew,
but I had no idea.
What you lived through.
What you had to carry.
What you're still
carrying right now.
I'm so sorry.
You have nothing
to be sorry for.
And I get it now. You know,
you did want to talk to me.
It was that moment before
we got married, you know?
You were standing in the rain
as I changed your tire.
What about it?
One of my favorite memories.
I had just broken up with you
for a second time.
But you called me.
So I knew it wasn't over.
I missed you.
Military's missing a good man.
Chaplain Rodgers, sir.
- It's good to see you, Darren.
- You, too.
I hear things have really
turned around for you guys.
Yeah, and I plan
to keep it that way.
Home is the best place to be.
I got a call from a good friend
at Fort Campbell.
Their Special Forces team needs
a chaplain.
Now, Special Forces deployments
are limited and brief.
You'd even get the promotion
to Captain
that Jacobsen wanted for you.
I'm honored, sir.
I truly am.
But I'm sorry.
Like I said...
military's missing a good man.
Hey, guys.
I think I hear some action
brewing at Fort Bumblefoot.
Meet you there in 2.5 seconds!
- Wow.
- Last one there's a rotten egg!
You know, I think we should
probably bring the fort with us
when we move.
When you take the job.
What are you talking about?
I heard it
through the grapevine,
so I called Chaplain Rodgers
Who are you,
and what have you done
with my wife?
Look, we know
what to expect now.
We know how to prepare.
Look, you and I both know
this is what
we're called to... Captain.
It's who we're called to.
To all who shall see
these presents, greeting.
This is to certify
that the president of
the United States of America,
authorized by executive order,
has awarded
the Bronze Star medal
to Captain Darren A. Turner,
United States Army.
You may be seated.
Thank you very much.
This is, uh... deeply humbling.
It is with great honor
that I have served my country.
But I only stand
before you today
because Jesus is my rock.
And because I have a family
who loves and believes in me,
and friends
that never gave up on me.
And it's also why I can
and will continue
to serve as I've been asked,
to the very best of my ability.
My family and I...
we made a promise to each other
to protect ourselves
from anything
that might try to divide us.
And we've found
that the best way to do that
is to put on the Armor of God.
So today I encourage you
to wear, by faith,
the belt of God's truth.
The breastplate
of His righteousness.
Sandals of His peace.
The shield of faith
in His power
against all enemies.
The helmet of salvation,
found in Him.
And the sword of His powerful
and gracious spirit.
Before I left for Iraq,
I thought I knew
what it meant
to put on that armor.
Here's what I learned.
No one is promised tomorrow.
So I'm choosing to put my faith
in the one who holds
all my tomorrows.
As for me and my family...
it's the only way to live.
- Hey, buddy. You must be Colby.
- Hi.
- Shonda, hi.
- Hi. Yes.
- So nice to meet you.
- It's nice to meet you.
What's this?
Bars look good on you, sir.
Yeah. Look taller, right?
Yeah, a little bit.
Little bit.
I had my eye on you, Captain.
It's why I'm here,
why... we're here.
Thank you.
There is no ocean
that can't be parted
There is no mountain
that can't be moved
I know there's help
for the heavy-hearted
The weak will find
their strength renewed
You just gotta have faith
Mmm, you just
gotta have faith
It's light for the shadows
For all your tomorrows
It's knowing He's there
Through the sun
and the rain
It's when you believe it
before you can see it
And you can walk on
'cause He's making a way
Just gotta have some
Faith, faith
You've gotta have some
Faith, faith
Searching for purpose
in all the waiting
Praying through
so many silent hours
Finding a breath
when you feel like fading
Learning to love
where you are right now
You just gotta have faith
Just gotta have some faith
You gotta have some
Faith, faith
You've gotta have some
Faith, faith
Oh, you've gotta have
some faith
Faith, faith
You've gotta have some
Faith, faith
Remember your rescue
Is standing beside you
He's light for the shadows
He's hope for tomorrow
He'll always be there
through the sun and the rain
- You've got to believe it
- Yeah...
Before you can see it
And you can walk on
'cause He's making a way
Just gotta have some
- Faith, faith
- Ooh...
You gotta have some
Faith, faith
When you don't see it
but you believe it anyway
- Faith, faith
- Ooh, ooh
Faith, faith
Oh... hey...
Just gotta have some faith.
