The following is a brief summary of the content found in this R-rated drama. Profanity consists of at least 278 "f" words, while many other expletives and colorful phrases are uttered. Sexually related dialogue (much of it explicit) is present, as are some sexual encounters (including two with nudity and graphic movement) and other sexual material (including a man masturbating in a bathroom stall and some men making mock sexual movements with each other). Some Marines are seen nude in the shower (bare butts and partially seen full frontal), while a scantly clad woman is seen in photos.
The aftermath of unseen violence shows a bombed and burned out convoy filled with charred corpses, while bombs drop around men in combat and kill at least two men in an air strike. Another hits a truck and catches some men on fire and an enlistee is accidentally killed by gunfire during training. Some fighting occurs along with other physical contact, while a deranged Marine threatens another with his gun.
That scene, other moments of peril, the rest of the violence and the visualized gore might be unsettling or suspenseful to some viewers. Various characters have varying degrees of bad attitudes, while a Marine learns that his wife is cheating on him back home. Marines drink and/or smoke, while other potentially imitative behavior is present.
