From the National Geographic Press Release of Mar 23, 2017 2:30 PM:
“Over eight episodes, The Long Road Home will relive a heroic fight for survival during the Iraq War, when the 1st Cavalry Division from Fort Hood was ferociously ambushed on April 4, 2004, in Sadr City, Baghdad — a day that came to be known in military annals as “Black Sunday.” The event series will cut between the action on the ground in Iraq and that of the home front back in Texas, where wives and families await news for 48 hellish hours, expecting the worst. The incident, which took place 11 months after President George W. Bush’s famous “Mission Accomplished” speech, changed the American military’s view of Iraq from a peacekeeping mission to a fight against domestic insurgents. The Long Road Home is an extraordinary story of war, dramatizing not just the heroism and sacrifice on the front lines but the family bonds and courage on the homefront,” said Carolyn G. Bernstein, executive vice president and head of global scripted development and production, National Geographic. “We are thrilled to have such a strong, talented cast on board to portray the real-life heroes -the courageous soldiers and their equally courageous families -who sacrificed so much for our country.”
