Thirty years after they served together in Vietnam, a former Navy Corpsman Larry "Doc" Shepherd re-unites with his old buddies, former Marines Sal Nealon and Reverend Richard Mueller, to bury his son, a young Marine killed in the Iraq War.
Sal was originally written as an Italian-American with a heavy Queens accent. Bryan Cranston suggested, with Linklater's blessing, to perform the character as half-Irish.
Larry 'Doc' Shepherd:
I'm not going to bury a marine. I'm just going to bury my son.
