    Good episode and I'm glad the writers didn't do some out of place wrap up for the finale. The one character's video was enough of a montage of their experiences.

    Letters from home - I didn't notice the lack of communication w/ family until the segment of the marines receiving the letters. 1 wife joins the Marines?!

    Football game - Captain Patterson of Alpha team had been so restrained and assured compared to the other captains of lesser experience. I'm glad he refused the landmine marking command and popped Encino Man.

    Captain America was a jerk to the end.

    I'll miss it, but I think 7 episodes were enough.

    Great episode. I loved the video at the end and one by one they all just kind of walked away. My two favorite parts were when the reporter was running from the sniper, and you see Colbert trying to find him with his gun and while his eye is still up at his gun he looks over at the reporter and has that "what the hell?" look. classic. I also enjoyed it when they left Baghdad and Person goes "that was fun, who can we invade next?". Perfect delivery on that line. All in all a great series, too bad it's over. It would have been nice if they showed what happened to everyone afterwards.

    Ray annoyed me greatly during the first episode I watched, but I began to see that he did have some depth. The football game showed more of Ray's character...or maybe it really was just the lack of Ripped Fuel in his system - he lost his Invasion Buzz.

    Well it gets a great vote based on the Johnny Cash montage and the real audio interviews at the end. This was perfect I agree seven episodes was enough the best Iraq was entertainment so far. Which isn't saying much but this was a well done production as to be expected by the Baltimore boys great job.
