In the Fight

Add to Watchlist

In the Fight is a monthly half hour program that takes us beyond standard news coverage and shows us the day to day of military in the field. It is the ultimate reality show, no glam, no gliz, just a good honest look of what is happening in the field as well as at home.

In one episode we see "the most hated unit in the military", a unit whose job it is to train others to fight against al Qaeda. Because of them, many units are better prepared when they arrive overseas. It also talked to a young Marine who lost a hand in combat, but rebuilt his life with the help of martial arts. Another episode, showed how the Army is teaching the police force in Afghanistan to use non lethal weapons.

Between each news story are shout outs from servicemen, and women, from around the globe. It is a refreshingly positive look at how our military work at keeping us safe every day.
