Prior to the start of the novel, nineteen-year-old Billy Lynn , a soldier in the United States Army, was involved in a firefight on the banks of the Al-Ansakar Canal in Iraq. During the fight, Billy attempted to save his mentor, Shroom , but Shroom died at the hands of Iraqi insurgents anyway. Because the firefight was filmed by an embedded news team, Billy's platoon was renamed Bravo squad, heralded as heroes, and President Bush asked them to return home for a two-week Victory Tour, culminating at the Dallas Cowboys Thanksgiving Day game. On Thanksgiving Day, Billy arrives in a limo to the Texas Stadium and thinks that it looks very different from the stadium he's seen on television. A group of college girls drives up alongside the limo and yells for the Bravos to put their windows down. When the soldiers do so, the girls' faces fall—they're uninterested in soldiers. A movie producer, Albert , rides with Bravo.
