    Band of Brothers was awesome.

    Reading Jarhead right now. Gives a different perspective on being Infantry. :hsd:

    It Doesn't Take a Hero : The Autobiography of General H. Norman Schwarzkopf
    ... Great insight into the life of the general that won a war and laid vietnam to rest.

    Black Hawk Down: A Story of Modern War by Mark Bowden
    ... Written by the father of another 3rd ID soldier. Made me want to hide the guys in the book just to give 'em a few minutes of rest. :hs:

    The Charm School by Nelson DeMille
    ... Excellent cold war fiction

    I read that one (and many of his follow-ups) in high school.
    The first one is the only one that has any real kind of truth to it.
