5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Reading, March 17, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
As a member of Outlaw Platoon, I can not stress enough the importance of this book to our nation's forgotten infantry soldiers. Outlaw Platoon is an honest and compelling account of life and death in the trenches and does true justice to our combat experience.

As you read this post, there are thousands of men on battlefields around the world killing and suffering for the preservation of American ideals. As a civilized society and beneficiaries of our nation's might, we must meet their sacrifices with unwavering support. It is not enough for us to adhere a yellow ribbon to our cars, to shake a soldier's hand, or even to send care packages to the front. More than anything, these men need our understanding. They need to know that we are aware of their plight, that we are invested in their success, and that we are willing to help shoulder the burdens of combat, just by listening and caring.

Outlaw Platoon is a window into the world of America's infantry warriors. In the book, Sean puts you on the ground in Afghanistan, straps 100 pounds of gear on your back, and injects you into the fight. However, he also introduces you to the human side of the war, highlighting the exceptional diversity of the platoon and the strength that it generates, as well as the horrifying realities of life for Afghani civilians.

Not only is Outlaw Platoon a thrilling, emotionally-charged read, it is a tool for healing the wounded souls of our discarded patriots and reuniting the American people with the guardians of our way of life. It is our undeniable duty as Americans to share the load of our foreign wars, and by simply reading Outlaw Platoon with a compassionate heart, we are doing our part for the men we put in harm's way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Pen, May 23, 2005
I don't care how it looks, this pen is functionally proficient. When my local retailer stopped stocking them, instead of selecting an alternative, I held out and found another source for this specific pen.

3.0 out of 5 stars Where's the Portis?, April 10, 2005
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This DVD has some decent highlights, but only 22 minutes of content. The focus is on the team's overall performance, but concentrates particularly on Plummer and his receivers. Strangely, there is very little mention of Clinton Portis, and almost no highlights of his runs. If you're looking for Portis highlights, like I was, look elsewhere. It does include a couple of great runs by Griffin, Dante Hall's amazing kick return, and Randy Moss's over-the-head touchdown lateral.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unbeatable Football Fun, August 15, 2002
Although it's been many years since the release of Tecmo Bowl, it remains the greatest multi-player football game of all time. It's more than just a classic; it's a one of a kind gaming masterpiece. One of the best features of the game is its comparative simplicity. For years Tecmo Bowl has reigned supreme, and there are no signs of it abdicating its throne anytime soon.
