LOGAN:
You know, the smallest thing

can change your life.

In the blink of an eye, something happens

by chance, when you least expect it...

...sets you on a course

that you never planned...

...into a future you never imagined.

Where will it take you?

That's the journey of our lives.

Our search for the light.

But sometimes...

...finding the light means you must pass

through the deepest darkness.

At least, that's how it was for me.

[DOG BARKING

AND HELICOPTER WHIRRING]

[WHISPERING]

Security team's ready to go.

[WHISPERING]

Move them.

Ready? Move.

[IN NORMAL VOICE]

Ready? Go.

[SOLDIERS SHOUTING]

Don't move!

SOLDIER 1:
Three civilians!

LOGAN:
Check them!

[MEN SHOUTING

IN FOREIGN LANGUAGE]

LOGAN:

Woman and child!

SOLDIER 2:

Stay left! Coming through!

[SHOUTING CONTINUES]

Three children, three children!

SOLDIER 3:

I'm chasing one to my left!

VICTOR:

Go,

[BOTH PANTING]

VICTOR:

Shit.

SOLDIER 4:

Over here.

- Castro!

CASTRO:
Right here.

Bumping heads with third platoon.

Get on the horn.

CASTRO:
I'm on it, Aces.

-"Aces"?

You guys came--

[GUNFIRE AND SOLDIERS SHOUTING]

I got a man down. Need Doc Sanders.

First oor corridor.

Secure the hallway!

Move!

Move, move, move!

Talk to me, Castro. It's Aces.

We're gonna get you out of here.

[INDISTINCT CHATTER OVER RADIO]

[HELICOPTER WHIRRING]

Roger. About 20 mikes. Helo is inbound.

[LOGAN GRUNTS]

Let's move out.

VICTOR:

Now just sit.

[VICTOR TALKING INDISTINCTLY]

Mortar. Right where you were sitting.

Three other guys didn't make it.

The corpsman found this

in your SAW pouch.

I saw you pick it up.

Looks like it saved you.

Got yourself a guardian angel.

She's not mine.

[MAYFIELD PERFORMING

"WASTED GENERATION"]

[CROWD CHEERING]

- Do you know whose picture that is?

- No idea.

- You know whose picture this is?

- No.

- No. Sorry.

- No?

No, I don't think so.

We're the wasted generation

I'm telling you, man, you gotta set eyes

on that girl one day.

You got to thank her.

No question. She's the reason

you're still breathing.

Give her a kiss for me too.

I'm only alive because I followed

your crazy ass.

LOGAN:
We just got a couple breaks is all,

man. No big deal.

Bullshit.

Things like this don't just happen.

She's got you out of this mess.

We're going home.

God, you're full of shit, Victor.

I say you owe her, Big time.

[EXPLOSION]

[GUNFIRE ON VIDEO GAME]

BOY:
You're doing good.

Now look at my shot.

[BARKING]

LOGAN:

Zeus!

Buddy, hey. Come here.

How you doing? Hi.

How you doing? Hey, buddy.

They look after you?

[WHISPERING]

Go on, ask her.

[IN NORMAL VOICE]

So, Mom, when do I get my room back?

Honey, let's make Uncle Logan

feel welcome.

[ROCK MUSIC PLAYING

[GUNFIRE & EXPLOSION ON TV]

BOYS:

Mom.

SISTER:

Go outside and play.

- Come on, we were just about to win.

- Go outside now,

- Yes, ma'am.

- Oh, fine.

SISTER:
Are you okay?

- Yeah.

[WHISPERING]

He's gonna make it on YouTube.

Time to wake up!

[BOTH GRUNT]

Mom! Mom!

[TIM WHIMPERING]

Hey, sorry. Tim. Sorry.

You know, the Corps

can get you some help.

[SIGHS]

LOGAN:
Why did I make it out

when so many guys didn't?

But I feel like there's this debt

that I have to pay.

I don't know where I belong.

I guess I should figure that out.

Um...

I know there's no easy answer, sis...

but maybe all I need is time.

LOGAN:

any chance gnu recognize that girl?

No, I'm sorry. Not in the boat region.

Good luck.

Thank you.
