Happy Christmas to me....
A look at the first Gulf war in 1990, through the eyes of a Marine sniper. We follow him through basic training before they fly out to Kuwait, where they have to deal with never-ending boredom before the last 30 minutes, when the action gets real. ''Jarhead'' is the nickname that the Marines use for themselves.
