In 2003, after serving five and a half years as a carpenter in a North Dakota National Guard engineer unit, Bronson Lemer was ready to leave the military behind. But six months short of completing his commitment to the army, Lemer was deployed on a yearlong tour of duty to Iraq. Leaving college life behind in the Midwest, he yearns for a lost love and quietly dreams of a future as an openly gay man outside the military. He discovers that his father´s lifelong example of silent strength has taught him much about being a man, and these lessons help him survive in a war zone and to conceal his sexuality, as he is required to do by the U.S. military. The Last Deployment is a moving, provocative chronicle of one soldier´s struggle to reconcile military brotherhood with self-acceptance. Lemer captures the absurd nuances of a soldier´s daily life: growing a mustache to disguise his fear, wearing pantyhose to battle sand fleas, and exchanging barbs with Iraqis while driving through Baghdad. But most strikingly, he describes the poignant reality faced by gay servicemen and servicewomen, who must mask their identities while serving a country that disowns them. Often funny, sometimes anguished, The Last Deployment paints a deeply personal portrait of war in the 21st century. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kevin Pierce.

Der junge Yankee-Soldat Honus Gran (Peter Strauss) und die schöne Cresta Lee (Candice Bergen) sind die einzigen Überlebenden eines Überfalls der Cheyenne-Indianer auf einen Geldtransporter. Honus hasst die Indianer und hat für Cresta, die einst mit dem Häuptling der Cheyenne verheiratet war, nur Verachtung übrig. Cresta sieht das kriegstreiberische Verhalten der US-Kavallerie sehr kritisch und bringt dies offen zum Ausdruck. Als Honus verletzt wird, lässt Cresta ihn zurück, um Hilfe zu holen. Honus schlägt sich allein bis zum Fort durch und wird zum Feldzug gegen die Cheyenne eingesetzt. Er muss miterleben, wie seine geliebte Kavallerie sich des Völkermordes schuldig macht. Obwohl Häuptling Gefleckter Wolf den Soldaten mit einer weißen Fahne entgegenreitet, wird sein Stamm brutal niedergemetzelt. Das schonungslose Massaker basiert auf einer wahren Begebenheit: 1864 metzelte die US-Kavallerie in Sand Creek ein Indianerdorf nieder. 500 Indianer, davon die Hälfte Frauen und Kinder, fanden den Tod.

For narrator Matt, ´´the greatest comfort of surfing comes in the sureness and instinct.´´ Matt is not just coming of age, he´s coming out, and in the sun-bleached world of the North Carolina beaches his burgeoning sexuality can toss as many curves as a wave. Through his longings and self-discovery, Matt knows he cannot let others triumph over being the man he knows to be.
