Outlaw Platoon - Sean Parnell, John Bruning

Outlaw Platoon is a true story of Heroes, Renegades, Infidels, and the Brotherhood of War in Afghanistan.
This book almost makes you feel like you were there. The first person account of a war with too many rules and too little resources is riveting. The outlaw platoon was part of the legendary U.S. Army's 10th Mountain Division. They patrolled the border between Afghanistan and Pakistan on an almost daily basis. Many were wounded. Some died. They all sacrificed 16 months of their life for freedom. Very highly recommended.

Because We Can! is book eleven in the Donovan Creed series.
Just when you thought Donovan and Callie were going to finally get together that green eyed monster ruins it. Then there's the domestic terrorist and all the other chaos that is Donovan's life.

Bestiarii - James Tarr

Bestiarii is a novel of the possible future, but not that far in the future. Except this future has dinosaurs. This book is available through kindleunlimited.
It starts out as a simple mission. Transport a few civilians to Victoria Base. A relatively safe location well outside the area where the fighting in the Mexican civil war was taking place. A father and son were going on a dinosaur hunt. The third civilian was to be picked up at the supply post near the town of China. She was a young biologist finishing her thesis fieldwork and heading home. When they left China in their Blackhawk they never dreamed the trouble that was coming. Trouble from Mexican rebels and Mexican dinosaurs. This is an awesome adventure. Very highly recommended.
