Oh, yes, sir.

They're citizens and you're soldiers!

Or supposed to be.

Yes, Sergeant?

- Nothing, sir.

- Very well.

Now, let's just say that I happen

to need you men at the moment.

You know, merely paying for this

is not going to settle the matter.

We'll discuss further punishment later.

You know, maybe I should teach you men

the value of those stripes

by taking them away from you.

- Sergeant Merry.

- Sir.

You will assemble a detail

and proceed at once to Medicine Bend.

Telegraph line is out there

under very mysterious circumstances.

We received what our telegrapher

believes to be a distress call

when the line went dead.

You are to investigate the situation

and report back to me as soon as possible.

- That'll be all.

- Yes, sir.

You go along with them, Wilson,

and see that they get started.

Yes, sir.

- Sir!

Red Eagle. Caleb Iron-Mountain.

Aaron Redhut. Red Eagle.

- Caleb.

- Yes, Sergeant.

Where'd that big white mule come from?

What big white mule, Sergeant?

That big white mule.

Easy now. Easy now.

Let me put this on you.

Now that you're all straightened out,

doesn't that feel good?

He give you that saddle?

- Well, Sergeant...

- He's a very good man

with the mules and horses,

Sergeant, very good.

- And he could use a helper.

- That's right.

All right, okay.

But remember, son, you're a civilian.

You're not part of the military, you got it?

Yes, sir. Yes, Sergeant Mike.

Column of twos.


I pick up rider who follow us, Sergeant.

- Who is he?

- Well, he... I...

So, you wouldn't listen?

Listen to what, Sergeant Mike?

I told you this is no place for civilians.

This is an army detail.


There are so many horses to take care of.
