This Is Nowhere, A Documentary About Company B And The Final Days Of Sperwan Ghar



This Is Nowhere, is a documentary about Bravo Company,  1-38 Infantry, 4/2 SBCT and their days on a patch of land that saw one of the largest Offensives in the History of NATO. That battle is depicted in the book, “The Lions Of Kandahar”.

This teaser is for the documentary of the 1-38th’s time at a place they called Hell. They were the last to occupy COP Sperwan Ghar, this is their story. The documentary is being put together by SSG Kyle Chattin, and he sent us the following email along with the trailer.

For the longest time I had sat back and watch people make movies and documentaries about the last decade of deployments and I said to myself, no one gets it right… RESTREPO got it the most right you could but even then you knew it was someone outside looking in.

Well , I have a background in the film industry prior to my service and Im throwing that and all the passion I can muster into a project that details my most recent deployment and all the incredible men whom I served along side.


We had the pleasure of being stationed at COP Sperwan Ghar, the same place they wrote lions of Kandahar about.  So it makes for a movie that every grunt can relate to.


Anyway, enough of my rambling. I want people to know about it, I dont want to make money, I dont want to get famous and I dont give two shits about anything other than allowing the story of these men to be heard.


I for one, and going to give him props as I think the Trailer is well done and makes me want to see the finished product.

  1. Powerful Trailer.. well done!

    I can only pray that those who were Lucky or Blessed enough to Survive will continue to Share Their Stories, THEIR REALITIES! While I respect the courage it takes to relive these events over and over in the Sharing of Truth, it provides the most compelling Reasons we never want to go back.

    Slowly, ever so slowly our Nation is becoming exposed to what lays beyond our World of Comfort and Privilege, an Education paid for in the Blood, Sweat and Tears of our Warrior Children. If we allow this story and many others like it to slip into the darkness and fall from memory then what was the fight for in the first place?

  2. Laurence Binyon

    Here is the full poem.

    For The Fallen
    With proud thanksgiving, a mother for her children,
    England mourns for her dead across the sea.
    Flesh of her flesh they were, spirit of her spirit,
    Fallen in the cause of the free.

    Solemn the drums thrill; Death august and royal
    Sings sorrow up into immortal spheres,
    There is music in the midst of desolation
    And a glory that shines upon our tears.

    They went with songs to the battle, they were young,
    Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow.
    They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted;
    They fell with their faces to the foe.

    They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
    Age shall not weary them, nor the years contemn.
    At the going down of the sun and in the morning
    We will remember them.

    They mingle not with their laughing comrades again;
    They sit no more at familiar tables of home;
    They have no lot in our labour of the day-time;
    They sleep beyond England’s foam.

    But where our desires are and our hopes profound,
    Felt as a well-spring that is hidden from sight,
    To the innermost heart of their own land they are known
    As the stars are known to the Night;

    As the stars that shall be bright when we are dust,
    Moving in marches upon the heavenly plain;
    As the stars that are starry in the time of our darkness,
    To the end, to the end, they remain.

  3. Rock of the Marne! I miss my days with 3/2 CR reflagged to 1-38 INF… Great outfit right there. Looks like a great documentary put together by the SSG Chattin

  4. As a former Canadian soldier who served there in 2010 before the hand over, I definitely can’t wait to see this. Keep up the great work bud, i’ll be watching for a release date.

  5. Being among the first group of new booties in b-co 1-38 at ft. Lewis I cannot wait to see this. Just sad that I couldn’t be a part of it. Pcs’d after the first hitch in Iraq. Bayonet company will always be special to me.
