This group of men work for the private military company Crucible providing security for U.S. State Department contractors in Afghanistan. The men who decide to work as private security contractors often base their decision to do so upon a combination of a feeling of patriotic duty, a desire for action, and the ability to make a lot of money. Private military contractors work in many of the world’s war zones often with little oversight from any government.
