It is a character study of Sergeant Chris Tucker, on exercise at Fort Lewis, Washington in March 2004.
As the site of the Calgary Highlanders explains:
Sergeant Tucker was presented the J.Fred Scott Memorial Cup at the St. Julien's Dinner in April 2004 as Top Athlete in the Regiment, having captained the Oak Leafs in the 2003-2004 season. The team's penalty minute statistics stand in mute tribute to his competitiveness. Off the ice, Sergeant Tucker commanded an infantry section of the Regiment's CRIC (Composite Reserve Infantry Company) Platoon that served in the former Yugoslavia as part of Roto 11 in the winter of 2002-2003.
Sergeant Tucker epitomizes the idea that an Infantry Regiment lives or dies by the toughness, experience, and professionalism of its senior non-commissioned officers.
And Israel is accused of being a 'militaristic society'.
