FRONTLINE | Extras: "Bad Voodoo's War" | PBS

Duration: 02:34

www.pbs.org/frontline/badvoodo...

SFC Toby Nunn pays tribute to his fallen friend who took 18 rounds on the ramp of a Stryker, giving the rest of his men time to get to safety, from "Bad Voodoo's War" coming April 1 to PBS and www.pbs.org/frontline/badvoodo...

In June 2007, as the American military surge reached its peak, a band of National Guard infantrymen who call themselves the "Bad Voodoo Platoon" was deployed to Iraq. To capture a vivid, first-person account of the new realities of war in Iraq for FRONTLINE and ITVS director Deborah Scranton (The War Tapes) created a "virtual embed" with the platoon, supplying cameras to the soldiers so they could record and tell the story of their war. The film intimately tracks the veteran soldiers of "Bad Voodoo" through the daily grind of their perilous mission, dodging deadly IEDs, grappling with the political complexities of dealing with Iraqi security forces, and battling their fatigue and their fears.

Watch on air and online beginning April 1, 2008.
