I live in the U.S. and have nothing but respect for the men and women in the armed forces. This is really a great idea not only for moral but "any" way the troops would get to communicate with their friends and families back home is a plus.

Good going Micro.

Halo is big among in the United States Marine Corps despite

"Master Chief" being a Navy rank.

Good job Microsoft. Especially the chat thing. That'll mean more to those guys and gals than Halo 3.

Excellent job on microsoft's part.

did it with the original xbox too.

and where else would they get their halo 3 fix? on ps3?

actually since the 360's will be coming with headsets, most likely games won't be played as much because of hogging of the chat time.

Let alone Phone cards are expensive and when I was over there the PX(store) was often sold out when I got off patrol....
