American Troops Bring Along The Pop Culture

The modern American soldier carries his/r pop culture along to war, toting, MP3 players, satellite dishes, and DVD players. “When a day’s combat patrol or reconstruction mission is over, the troops join the global consumer culture, retreating into the the privacy of headphones to recapture a bit of territory in the war zone, free from the collective of military life. The new technologies have had a potent impact on the military, ending its monopoly over the supply of news and entertainment for American troops serving in a foreign land whose borders include a language barrier.”
