Check out the latest Patriot Profile releases by the NRA Life of Duty. It´s about some normal “Infantry soldiers” stationed near the Pakistani border in Afghanistan.
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.
In 2006 Lt. Sean Parnell and the men at Third Platoon had deployed to one of the most dangerous area of Afghanistan, less than 10 miles from the Pakistani border. Their mission was to seek out enemy positions and thwart the movement of insurgent forces, into and out of the save haven of Pakistan. And was to disrupt and destroy this network at all costs. On June 10, they were under a fierce assault by the Taliban and enemy insurgents. RPGs and Mortars rained down on them, and machine gun fire seemed to come at them from all directions. If they didn’t get help soon, the outcome looked grim for Sean Parnell and the men under his leadership, known as the Outlaw Platoon.
