What do you have for me?

Orders from battalion, sir.

You confirmed this?

Yes sir, verified it twice.

Thank you.


Hope that means good news.

Not really.

Orders to push.

Make a push?

They know where we are, right?

They should.

Jack, this is wrong.

Yeah, I know.

Damn orders, right?

Yes sir.

Let's get it done, Sergeant.

Sir, it's a great spot to be ambushed.

How much further?

Right here.

25 kilometers ahead.

Griff, take point.

We gotta get out of here.

Dying won't save them.

We gotta take out those MG's.

We've got to find the flank.

You got it.

Stay low, stay low.

Six Jerrys, what do you think?

One, two maybe.

They'd be on us before we got the rest.

Guess their only hope is

to wait for a battle change.

I gotta get close.


Keep your head down, Sergeant.

It's about time.

You know what they say...

You don't get tired of

saving my ass, Sergeant?


Damn you!

What'd you do?

What'd you do, huh?

I'm sorry, Jack.

You're not going anywhere,

you're not going anywhere,

You hang in there,

you hang in there, ok?

Come on, soldier!

You better get rolling, Jack.

Come on, hang in there!

I'm sick of this fucking war.

You were a good man, Sergeant.

I'm sorry to hear about your men.

Brass gave you the wrong orders,

And now you're taking

the hit for their f*ck up.

You know what your problem was?

Not a god damn thing.

You followed orders.

I'm Colonel A.J. Redding.

Lieutenant Jack Wosick, sir.

Listen soldier, sorry about

this but you're gonna have to...

You're gonna have to slap these on.

Yes sir.

I've actually heard about

you before, Lieutenant.

How so, sir?

Everybody knows your name.

D-Day you attacked and

held a vital German position

At a crossroads for, what, six hours?

Earned yourself a bronze star.

That night, sir, we were

dropped all over the place,

Gathered the troopers I could find,

Just did what was

necessary, nothing more, sir.

A lot of men couldn't have done that.

Soldier, you know how to lead men.

You know how to lead men

when the shit hits the fan.

I'm putting together a

group of handpicked men

For a very special mission.

And I need you to lead them.

Respectfully, I think you

have the wrong man, sir.

No soldier, I got the right man.

And I ain't got nobody else.

Lieutenant Wosick,

this is Captain Picault

Of the French Foreign Legion.

The Colonel has told me all about you.

I look forward to fighting together.

Can I ask why me, sir?

Why not you, soldier?

I need you, I need

you back in the fight.

And not everybody

deserves a second chance.

What's on your mind, soldier?

If I do this, will I be

cleared of all the charges?

You got my word, you

bet your ass you will.

Then I guess that's a yes, sir.

I thought that might be your answer.

Here are the folders on our men.

The um... War Pigs.

War Pigs... What's that about?

Bless America.

Go, go, go!

This was a really terrible idea.

We gotta go, kid!

I'm too young to die.

Stupid American!

Oh, what the hell is this?

It's good is what it is, eat it!

It looks like bird shit on a shingle.

Who put you in charge

of breakfast anyways?

You're welcome.

You should have seen the kid earlier.

He had one hand full of eggs,

the other one full of balls.

I wasn't scared.

Come on, you shit your trousers, kid.

A few small prayers,

son, you're good to go.

Speaking of prayers, preacher, you know,

I could use a little

heavenly help over here

With this hand, maybe you

could put in a word with

The big guy for me upstairs

regarding this hand?

You know what, I don't think

the Lord works that way.
