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 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.
