    CURRENT READS...

    OK..I will kick this off..I am currently reading LONE SURVIVOR by Marcus Luttrell
    This is an absolutely FANTASTIC book(and I am only on page 40)...A very eye-opening story...and I will admit that I am PROUD to have fellows like Marcus protecting us & doing the job that so many people are unwilling to do...

    Bondo, that is a great book. I finished it a couple weeks ago. Just wait till he gets to the fire fight, yer not gonna believe what those guys went through.

    I'm currently working through Old Soldiers Never Die: The Life of Douglas MacArthur again. Pretty good book on this controversial person.

    I am reading Nobody Comes Back by Donn Pearce. Its a fiction story about the Battle of The Bulge, but very realistic, just like Tim O'Briens books.

    I just got done reading "Kill Bin LAden" by Dalton Fury...EXCELLENT read. It is about the initial SF effort inside of Afghanistan. VERY informative!

    Also finished up "Six Minutes to Freedom" by Kurt Muse and John GilStrap. This one is about the arrest, incarciration, and ultimate escape of Kurt Muse in Panama. The book drags in parts...but the part about the Delta rescue is great. This is also called Operation Acid Gambit.

    Both books are highly recommended!!!!

    ok, let's revive this thread....
    just finished reading 'Ambush Alley' about the battle of An Nasariyah and I'm now half way through 'The Brad Kasal Story'.

    Ambush Alley was a great read, but unfortunately The Brad Kasal Story so far is just average to me.
    I LOVED 'Lone Survivor' as well as 'Not a good day to die' and 'Roberts Ridge' both about Op Anaconda.
