Ending
Lance Corporal Swofford's -- Swoff -- is a third-generation Marine, whom we see in boot camp right up to being deployed in Saudi Arabia during the 1991. There is a a time check point as we progress from a few days toward 176 days of waiting for something to happen. During the waiting period, they engage in various silliness, drills, and troubles. After 176 days, things heat up for all of about four days. Swoff is demoted to private after getting caught trading watch duty and the guy he traded with set off some flares. During the four days of action, Swoff as sniper and his spotter Sarsgaard are sent to kill a target, but a superior officer arrives at the last moment, cancels the order, and has the fighter planes bomb the place, 'robbing' him of having taken a single shot during the brief war. The two don't get picked up as they should have been picked, they hike back, and Swoff fires off a few rounds into the air, and others follow suit (in many cases, firing the only shots during the war). Back at home, Swoff goes home to find that Christine, his girl, truly did move on when another guy answers as Swoff stands on the porch in full dress uniform. At his home, Swoff gets a visit from another guy from his unit telling him Sarsgaard is dead; they go to the funeral. We see some of the other guys back in their civilian life now. Moving film reel
