U.S. pay-TV net HBO is set to air Sebastian Junger’s The Last Patrol, the final film in what it is now billing as the Restrepo filmmaker’s trilogy of war docs, on November 10.

The previously announced 90-minute doc focuses on a walk Junger (pictured) made from Washington DC to New York along Amtrak railroad lines with a Spanish photographer – who was with Junger’s Restrepo co-director Tim Hetherington when he was killed in Libya in 2011 – and two combat veterans Junger knew in Afghanistan.

The director had planned to make the journey with Hetherington before his death, and it is meant to symbolize the men’s desire to reacquaint themselves with the U.S. while reflecting on their experiences in combat abroad.

The Last Patrol - which was preceded by 2014′s Korengal and 2010′s Restrepo - will air on HBO on November 10 at 9 p.m. EST/PST.

The doc was produced by Junger and Nick Quested of Goldcrest Films. Sara Bernstein served as supervising producer for HBO and Sheila Nevins was the doc’s executive producer.
