It tells the story of an indigenous female soldier in the US Army who deploys to Iraq at the height of the tension of the Fallujah massacre and the Abu Ghraib scandal, and faces unexpected catastrophes and corruption. While her command leadership frivolously spends defense funds in Baghdad's Green Zone and turns local Iraqis into personal servants, she is sent along with three other soldiers to one of the most dangerous cities in Iraq, Ar Ramadi. In Ar Ramadi, she faces direct combat while performing checkpoint operations, personnel searches and house raids with Marine infantry units in addition to losing friends, earning the trust of locals, and responding to military suicides and homicides in the region.

This takes place all while her command severs their supplies, escalates persecution of minorities in the company, and launders thousands of dollars in defense funds intended for equipment and radios for those in austere regions like Ar Ramadi. This unit, ironically, is an Army mental health company.

She fights to prevent the same history from repeating itself in Iraq. This is especially the case for professionals who work with veterans and active-duty military personnel.

The Marine Corps is the smallest branch of service and contains the lowest percentage of women; enlisted personnel vastly outnumber officers — women Marine officers are thus thrice rare. Shade It Black by Jess Goodell tells her story of serving in a Marine Mortuary Affairs unit in Iraq, tasked with recovering and processing the remains of fallen troops. She then explores the difficulties of transitioning back to civilian existence and wrestling with post-traumatic stress disorder in a country that has been largely shielded from the images of our war dead.
