12 Strong tells the story of the first Special Forces team deployed to Afghanistan after 9/11; under the leadership of a new captain, the team must work with an Afghan warlord to take down the Taliban.
Second collaboration on real-life events among Thad Luckinbill, Kenneth Miller and Geoff Stults, the first being Only the Brave (2017), about the Granite Mountain Hotshots who died in a forest fire.
The most important thing you take into battle, is the reason why.
When initially inserting in an open MH-47G, the team can be heard singing "The Ballad of the Green Berets". In fact, the inside of an aircraft like this is much too loud to hear people talking to you unless you are very close to them and practically screaming.
In the closing credits, a photograph of the real team is shown.
