I feel like we're in a stadium

with a bunch of Jap spectators.

You think the Airedale's gonna cut it?

We got two days. The name

of the game's gonna be "hurry."

I don't know. He's not used

to this kind of life.

What'd you find out about him?

You know the stories these days.

He thought blue would go better

with his eyes than khaki,

and now he's a Marine.

Five years ago,

we'd have booted him out on his butt.

Today, he's you and me.

You guys got any powder?

I think my feet are about

to come off in my hands.

I guess I just ain't used to this jazz.

Would you like scented or plain?

Hey, Stub...

You got any of that lavender?

Gee, I forgot whether we got

lavender or sweet pea.

That's no problem.

Hey, would you like us

to draw you a nice hot tub?


Oh, you guys are puttin' me on.

None of you guys

ever seen a bathtub.

You stand out in the rain

like a bunch of horses.

Knock it off!

Look, gentlemen, this is the first

and last friendly little squabble

we're gonna have

amongst each other.

And I do not jest.

Does anyone

wanna question my sincerity?

Bury your cans.

Tank, Sarge.

Just over the rise.

Infantry support?

It's hard to say.

I didn't see any.

All right, we'll bypass them.

You tell them to close up,

keep together, and no conversation.


That's yours.

Damn noise is gonna bring

every Jap on the island down on us.

Get our people, and let's get

the hell out of here.

Maccone, Parrish, get Reynolds.

Come on, move!

Come on.

All right.

It's 1100.

Run your radio check.

Put them here.

All right, men.

Start digging here.

Diamond Blue,

Diamond Blue, this is Nugget.

Do you read me? Over.

Diamond Blue,

Diamond Blue, this is Nugget.

Do you read me? Over.

Diamond Blue, this is Nugget.

I read you five by five.
