U.S. Soldiers Get Halo 3 Military Edition Zune
Posted by XanTium | August 6 23:42 EST | News Category: Xbox360
 
From teamxbox.com:


On the heels of the popular black Zune - Halo 3 Edition, Microsoft is introducing a new brown version of the Halo-themed player for military service members. After receiving feedback on the popularity of the Zune players from U.S. soldiers, teams from Microsoft Zune and Microsoft's U.S. Federal business joined together to develop a special Zune - Halo 3 Military Edition, which will be available exclusively at military retail stores in August. The new version of the Zune - Halo 3 Edition player will be packaged in a collectible Halo 3 box, and will come pre-loaded with artwork, trailers, and music from all three Halo games.

A group of soldiers leaving for active duty from the Baltimore Washington International airport on August 6th will be the first to receive the new Halo Zune devices. Working closely with the USO, a non-profit organization focused on improving the quality of life of service members, Microsoft contributed 300 of the new Zune players to the USO of Metropolitan Washington to be part of a special USO care package the soldiers will receive.

< is tempted to join military just for that. lol

EDIT-
OMG! I actually just read the article! I'm assuming it's going to be available at the PX/BX/"The Exchange" (whatever you wanna call it) on military bases? Because I have a military ID (my father is retired Air Force).. so I could so get one!!!!
