Well, thank you.

Maybe I'll see you around.

- Am I being dismissed?

- Do you mind? I have a ton of work.


I just came by to give you that.

Thank you. That was sweet.

How's the tyre?

- Still rolling, ma'am.

- I'm glad.

- Well, goodbye, First Sergeant.

- Goodbye, Captain.

Gen. Campbell is being considered

for the vice-presidency.

Sources say presidential candidate

Bill Post is poised to select him -

- as his running mate. Earlier this

year, Campbell spoke at West Point.

Meant as a non-partisan appearance,

lt played like a stump speech.

Leading this country,

that is your destiny.

Get way over to that car.

Take it into the door.

Backing out.

- Snagged.

- On what?

I don't know.

Let's take a look.

Phone call for Paul Brenner.

- What did you say your name is?

- Frank White.

- You military?

- I'm a sergeant at the armoury.

- CID Agent Brenner!

- Suddenly he's blasting away.

You military boys got stories more

full of holes than a target range.

Sorry, Pop. It's Col. Kent.

Is there a Brenner here?

- I'm Brenner.

- I thought you was White.

I'm both.

Skunked you, Chief Yardley.

Hey, Bill. No, it's over.

Billing's dead.

All right, I'll see you there.

Hold on, soldier boy.

Tell me about this Mr Billing.

Soldier boy?

Okay, Chiefy, if you have to know.

I was planning to arrest him

in the morning.

But I guess he got wind

I was with the CID. See you.

- Good morning, sir. Where to?

- Urban Warfare site.

- You have business there?

- Yes, I do.

- Hey, Bill.

- Hello, Paul.

What have we got here?

Tortured, raped and murdered.

- Who found the body?

- A bomb squad crew doing exercises.

First on the scene

was a PFC Robbins.

- Is he a suspect?

- She, so I sincerely doubt it.

Six of my boys are securing

the scene. Nothing's been touched.
