Sgt. Brandon King (Phillippe) is a decorated Iraq War veteran who has served his tour of duty and country with pride. After returning to his hometown in Texas after his tour of duty is over, Brandon is faced with all the difficulties a soldier faces when resuming civilian life. Just when he is beginning to feel more comfortable at home than he was on the battlefield, Sgt.

Reason #36 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I read Widescreen Review because it’s simply the best A/V magazine available. No other magazine includes such a comprehensive discussion of developments and potential developments in the field, as well as a detailed analysis of systems and products available.

Kudos to Widescreen Review! I will never stop my subscription.
