I don't see that knife Montana, because

if I did, I'd have to shoot you.

You still don't understand! If I don't get

the colonel to the hospital, he'll die.

You want me to shoot you,

is that what you want?

Go ahead, shoot!

It's this way Montana,

you're expendable.

You and colonel here took yourself out of

the war, but my men aren't expendable.

Now, put that knife away.

Help me get the colonel

out of the jeep.

He can't walk. How Am I suppose

to get him to the hospital?

Carry him.

Here, you'll need this.

Hey, aboard on it!

All right men, don't bunch up.

Davis, prep him up.

Riordan, you stick with me.

How do you feel now?

I feel better.

That's good.

Ask the lieutenant to fetch

you a ride in the jeep.

How would you like that?

I'd like that.

But there is not enough room, there's

only room for the guns and the ammo.

You're more important than

the guns and the ammo.


How many times did I tell

you to keep your pot on?

Red Dog 2 calling Sunrise 6.

Come in Sunrise 6.

Come in!

I got him sir, I got him.

- Who?

- Captain Humphrey.

Humphrey? You son of a...

Who knocked him off?

Who fired?

Somebody shot him. Who was it?

It was me.

If I were you lieutenant,

I'd sit down.

Somebody out there heard you.

He's givin' you the finger.

What are you talking about, Montana?

You haven't been around much

lately, have you lieutenant?

He's not gonna hurt me.

These snipers...

they specialized at officers.

Alright, stand there. It's

your funeral, not mine.

I wish I'd get that snipers buddy.

He's sitting out there

now, watching us.

It's not healthy.

But how to find him,

that's the question.

Give me that phone.

What for, she won't work!

Right, stand up.

- Me? Right here?

- Right here.

- What are you doing?

- I'm perfectly safe.
