I was not brave enough to serve although my Father wanted me to. I have been watching Generation kill on HBO. I know it Hollywood hyped drama that is adapted from a book by a reporter for rolling stone.... so I know it is inaccurate but how far off is it?

Sounds unrealistic.............

I don't have HBO, and haven't read the book. I'll ask some old Ranger buds and see if any of them have seen it.

Never watched it...I don't like violence. :D

My most recent tour was with 187th Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne (AASLT). We had a British camera crew that followed us from pre-deployment trainup to redeployment. I think they titled it "Band of Brothers ....(something)...Rakkasans" but I cannot remember. Now that is the real deal.
