12 Strong - Unafraid to fail

So many stories of American soldiers fighting in foreign lands for freedom of the native peoples goes unnoticed because of highly classified combat missions that remain secret until years later when the classification is removed. “12 Strong” speaks of one of the most heroic moments in modern American warfare.
