Four months after President Bush declared the end of "major combat" operations in Iraq, American soldiers of the 2/3 Field Artillery AKA the "Gunners," continued to endure what they jokingly call "minor combat."
Their barracks are the bombed out pleasure palace (complete with swimming pool and putting green) of Sadaam Hussein's son - located right in the middle of the most volatile section of Baghdad.
With total access to all unit operations and activities, filmmaker Michael Tucker provides an inside look at the war not seen on the nightly news. Gunner Palace is a chaotic, surprising, real and sometimes amusing look inside the Iraq war as experienced and told first hand by our troops.
