The 11th Order

Director, Joshua DeFour; Producer, Lauren Izard

On the morning of April 22nd, 2008 two U.S. Marines, LCpl. Jordan Haerter and Cpl. Jonathan Yale, were standing gate watch in Ramadi, Iraq when a suicide truck bomber barreled toward their post. Haerter and Yale had six seconds to act, firing their weapons until the driver was brought to a halt. The truck exploded, killing both men, while sparing the lives of 150 Marines and Iraqi Police.

Less about glorifying warfare or the true event itself, the film aims to provide context to the unimaginable: to show these young men as everyday people put in extraordinary circumstances, and explain why there was never doubt in their actions and decisive sacrifice that fateful morning.
