Description

When the lawmakers in the State Capital passed an ill-advised law that could potentially bankrupt the state an innovative governor presents a plan to shift some of the burden to the Federal Government. The plan was to form a National Guard unit in a maximum security prison and work a scheme to get the men of that unit on active duty in the army.The scheme worked better than he could ever have imagined. This is the story of those convicts and the active duty army unit they formed. More than that, it is the story of a very special young man. The one of a kind that comes along once or twice in every century and how he was able to make the most of the opportunity offered him as a member of the Expendable Force. Live with them their adventures in ridding a nation of drug lords, fighting a war in the far east and their participation in a war in the middle east. See how they fared in war games in the American desert against units of the regular army.
