Col. DeRose:
We're chasing one man, Pancho Villa, over some of the wildest country on earth. You can quote me as saying that the Punitive Expedition U.S. Army has him completely surrounded... on one side.

Opening crawl:
On the night of March 8th, 1916, a large mounted force of Mexican rebels under Pancho Villa crossed the American border and attacked the town of Columbus, New Mexico, killing and wounding both American civilians and soldiers. As a result of this action, the United States Army sent an expedition into Mexico with orders to capture Villa and disperse his forces. It was during this campaign that one man, an United States Army officer, was forced to come face to face with two of the great fundamental questions that affect mankind: What is courage? What is cowardice? This is the story of his search for an answer.

Major Thomas Thorn:
Did you ever see the Medal of Honor?



Private Renziehausen:
No, Sir.



Major Thomas Thorn:

Private Renziehausen:
Excuse me, Sir, but I'd rather have the ear.

Adelaide Geary:
Heroes? Saints living in the desert? My God, they tried to rape me! And blackmail you! It's a wonder they haven't shot you already! No, Thorne, they're only men - and damned poor specimens at that!



Major Thomas Thorn:
I have less right than any man on earth to judge them.



Adelaide Geary:
Or to judge yourself either.



Major Thomas Thorn:
[pauses] You may be right, what you say. They're human beings. But they're more than that. They have one thing in them that is a miracle and a mystery. It redeems them. They don't know what it is themselves, but they have it. I have to save it.



Adelaide Geary:
You really believe this?


[he nods]



Adelaide Geary:
If you do, Thorn, if you do... you may be worth all of them.
