NRA Life Of Duty – Outlaw Platoon – Part 1

Part 1 of the two-part NRA Life of Duty series ‘Outlaw Platoon’, based on the book of the same name, is now available online. Part 2 is scheduled to be released July 17th, with a trailer available July 3rd.

In 2006, a platoon of men stationed near the Pakistani border sat in the crosshairs of some of the Taliban’s best trained and fiercest fighters. They were not elite members of any Special Forces team or Special Operations Command, but front line Infantry soldiers caught in the crossfires. Foot soldiers by design, but outlaws at heart.

This is the miraculous story of how a small collection of soldiers became a band of brothers, forging an unforgettable bond – from the New York Times best-selling book of the same name, written by Sean Parnell, platoon leader and US Army Ret.

    Great book! HANDS DOWN, THE BEST BOOK I’VE EVER READ ABOUT AFGHANISTAN and I’ve read all the “bestsellers”. I can’t think of a better book to recommend to anyone who wants to understand combat, the brotherhood of war and selflessness or be reminded of what it’s like to be on a combat outpost in Afghanistan with men you’ll never forget…
    This is a classic up there with Black Hawk Down.

    Written by Sean Parnell (w/John Bruning) about his Infantry platoon’s experiences in Afghanistan circa 2006 during a 15 month tour. It is inspiring and relates the day to day experiences of the no glory conventional Infantry. His 43 man platoon’s actions garnished seven bronze stars (five for valor), 12 ARCOMs with “V” and 32 purple hearts. There was no shortage of action.
