I'm not saying Frank is one of them,

but those two are Americans.

They're much too tall to be Vietnamese.

Average Vietnamese man

is about 5'2-1 /2".

And that's supposed to be Frank?

That is Frank.

I bought too many fakes

over the last 10 years.

That definitely is Frank.

Been a P.O.W.

10 years in that sh*t hole?

Frank is alive.

You got that?

My son is alive.

Take a look at that.

That's a high altitude photograph

taken from a SR-71.

Look closely.

Look at the paddy dikes.

The three lines there.

That's your old LRRP team designation...

First Battalion, 11 th Infantry.

Don't you see it?

Right here.


That's three lines in the ground.

It could be anything.

You know it isn't though, don't you?

That's a message from my son.

You know that.



Mrs. Wilkes?

Yeah, that's right.

I'm Jason Rhodes.

I phoned this morning.

Yeah, I know who you are.

Listen, my husband doesn't

want to talk to you.

I phoned him this morning,

and he said he did.

Not anymore.

Why don't you do me a favor and go away?

Not until I see your husband.

You've got no right to be here.

It's taken me 10 years

to get that god damned war

out of his head.

Looks to me like it's still in his head.


that's very deep.

Where were you all the days

he spent staring at the walls?

Hey, Wilkes!

Goddamn you!

Why did you send your wife out here?

Don't you have the guts to come out?

Leave him alone!

My son needs you!

At least look at our photographs.


I'll handle this now.

I don't like your tactics.

But I'll listen because of Frank.




Why didn't you stay in touch?

Why didn't you?

I don't know.

It's weird, ain't it?

How did they find you?

I don't know.

Came looking and found me.

Then we found you.

Thanks a lot, Blast.
