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.
"Dostum", the last name of the Uzbek general, means "my best friend" in Uzbek and many other Turkic and Indo-European languages.
Captain Mitch Nelson:
Eddy ya OK? Eddy?
When Capt. Nelson is spotting for Air Support by heavy bombers, he states he needs to get closer to get the actual coordinates. In fact, if you can see the target and you have a map--which Nelson did--you can plot the coordinates easily on the map and give them to the aircraft or the Joint Air Controller. There is no need to 'get closer'.
In the closing credits, a photograph of the real team is shown.
