FADE IN:

EXT. QUADRANGLE - DAY

LONG SHOT:

The quadrangle of Army buildings is quiet and deserted. A

.

way around the quadrangle. SUPERIMPOSED over shot is the

.

legend:

.

HAWAII, 1941

SIX MONTHS BEFORE

PEARL HARBOR .

The taxi pulls up across the street from camera. A soldier

gets out, pulls two heavily loaded barracks bags after him.

.

He pays the driver, hoists the bags to his back, moves toward

camera. The taxi drives away slowly. The soldier walks toward

steps leading to a low building. He is PREWITT (called "PREW"

.

for short), 22 years old, well-built, good-looking. He wears

an enlisted man's uniform and on the sleeves are marks where

chevrons have been removed. He pauses, looks up over the

door. CAMERA PANS UP to sign which reads: ORDERLY ROOM - G

COMPANY, 219TH REGIMENT.

MEDIUM SHOT:

.

A small thin soldier in an undershirt and fatigue pants backs

out of the screen door and into shot. He is wielding a frayed

broom. This is PRIVATE ANGELO MAGGIO. He is violent and funny

.

and sour and friendly. He sees Prewitt's legs but not his

face, speaks as he sweeps a cloud of dust off the porch.

MAGGID:

Fine way to pass the time. Good for

the mind.

PREW:

Hello, Maggio.

Maggio turns and stares at Prew, astonished.

MAGGIO .

Prew...? .

.

PREW:

(nods)

I transferred out of Fort Shatter.

.

Maggio notices the marks on the sleeves where the stripes

have been removed. Prew follows his glance.
