I feel all Americans should listen to this book to get a sense of what are military men and women do to keep us free. I cried, I laughed, but most of all I learned what these men and women are made of, honor, trust, strength, respect, determination and love. My father was in Vietnam. I don't know what he went thru but I can imagine it was hard. All of these men deserve the highest degree of respect! Thank you for your service! ❤
Raw and riveting. Recommend this book to be required reading for all senior high school students for both males and females.
Not only was the story completely engaging, but finally a person who can read a military memoir with emotion and expression! I listened to the whole book in a day while I was working. It's full of ups and downs and engaged me from the start. I highly recommend this book if you're into military memoirs. Not for the faint of heart, it's well written and offers an honest and raw view of what it's like to be in an infantry platoon in Afghanistan. These men's trials and tribulations had me laughing and crying. It was so well read aloud that I often stopped during difficult moments of the story to listen. I could hear the emotion in the narrator's voice. I highly recommend this book and thank you to our military!!!
A must read. But be prepared because you wont want to put it down.. Words cant describe the graditude I feel for the heros of Outlaw Platoon I feel like I kmow them. And thank you to Mr. Parnell for sharing his memories of his deployment with us all.
Intensely personal account of a young officer's struggle to lead from the front and never let his men down. Be careful, because as you listen you may realize that you could never be as courageous as Parnell and the men of the Outlaw platoon. JCW Manteo, NC
When you sleep safe and comfortable in your bed, these are the men that make it possible. This story of sacrifice, Honor, and Duty are what makes this country great. This story will make you rethink passing by a veteran again without stopping to thank them or pick up their tab. What we owe them is beyond comprehension, but this will give you a window.
