We don't salut up here Lieutenant.

I'm sorry Sir.

My officers of men shave everyday.

Oh, I'm sorry Sir.



Maj. Whittlesey:
You're sorry about a lot of things.



Lt. Leak:
Well, we got up here kinda late yesterday and...



Maj. Whittlesey:
Is that and excuse or an explanation? I'm not interested in either on. I want you and your platoon squared away, make sure your men have full rations, plenty of ammo. And wear that uniform properly. Put on dry socks if you have them and straighten your helmet. Oh and Lt. Leak, welcome to the 308th.

Cepheglia:
It's done.

It's not done. Anyhow, why should I share this with you?

Because I killed the guy you took it off.

Gen. Robert Alexander:
Major Whittlesey, there's going to be promotions and commondations for everybody! No wonder our airplanes couldn't find this place.



Lipasti:
Well your artillery certainly found it, General.



Gen. Robert Alexander:
[to Whittlesey] Where's the rest of your battallion?



Maj. Whittlesey:
[Whittlesee hands the General the collection of dog-tags] Sgt. Gaedeke we couldn't find enough to bury. Lt. Schenck's platoon is somewhere out there. I sent him to link with the French you said were on our flank, General.



Gen. Robert Alexander:
[pulls Whittlesey aside] These are acceptable losses...



Maj. Whittlesey:
Not to me sir.



Gen. Robert Alexander:
I understand your feelings fo your men.



Maj. Whittlesey:
You said our flanks were supported and you ordered my men to attack. You said supply would catch up to us which it did not. Is that acceptable to you?



Gen. Robert Alexander:
Yes, that's acceptable to me. We were able to break through the German line because you held on here... because you held on here like a thorn in their belly. Major, you did an incredible job out here, but you had 600 men to worry about and I had 20,000 sent into action. I have to live with that...



Gen. Robert Alexander:
I sent for trucks to bring your men back. They've been through hell.



Maj. Whittlesey:
You'll never know what they've been through, or what they can and can't do. They're better then you, General. They're better then me, they always are.



Gen. Robert Alexander:
Let me take you and your officers back in my staff car.



Maj. Whittlesey:
That's not acceptable, Sir. I'll stay with my men.



Gen. Robert Alexander:
I understand.



Maj. Whittlesey:
[the General salutes and Whittlesey just turns away] Men, we're moving out!
