Gunnery Sergeant Hartman:
Do any of you people know who Charles Whitman was? None of you dumbasses knows? Private Cowboy?
Private Cowboy:
Sir, he was that guy who shot all those people from that tower in Austin, Texas, sir!
Gunnery Sergeant Hartman:
That's affirmative. Charles Whitman killed twelve people from a twenty-eight-story observation tower at the University of Texas from distances up to four hundred yards. Anybody know who Lee Harvey Oswald was? Private Snowball?
Private Snowball:
Sir, he shot Kennedy, sir!
Gunnery Sergeant Hartman:
That's right, and do you know how far away he was?
Private Snowball:
Sir, it was pretty far! From that book suppository building, sir!
Gunnery Sergeant Hartman:
All right, knock it off! Two hundred and fifty feet! He was two hundred and fifty feet away and shooting at a moving target. Oswald got off three rounds with an old Italian bolt action rifle in only six seconds and scored two hits, including a head shot! Do any of you people know where these individuals learned to shoot? Private Joker?
Private Joker:
Sir, in the Marines, sir!
Gunnery Sergeant Hartman:
In the Marines! Outstanding! Those individuals showed what one motivated marine and his rifle can do! And before you ladies leave my island, you will be able to do the same thing!

... street by street and house by house.
Charles definitely
got his shit together...
... but we're still getting
some decent kills here.
We heard some scuttlebutt, sir, about
the NVA executing a lot of gook civilians.
That's affirmative.
I saw some bodies about a half a klick
this side of Phu Cam Canal.
Will you show me where, sir?
Here's the canal.
The dead have been covered with lime.
The dead know only one thing:
It is better to be alive.
Excuse me?
-Good morning, lieutenant.
-Morning.
I make it 20.
Is that the official body count, sir?
What outfit are you men with?
Sir, we're reporters
from Stars and Stripes.
-Oh, I see.
-I'm Sergeant Joker...
... and this photographer is Rafterman.
I'm Lieutenant Cleves
and I'm from Hartford, Connecticut.
-Have you got a body count, sir?
-We think it's 20.
Do you know how it happened, sir?
Well, it seems the NVA came in
with a list of gook names.
Government officials, policemen,
ARVlN officers, school teachers.
They went around
to their houses real polite...
... and asked them to report
the next day for political reeducation.
Everybody who turned up got shot.
Some they buried alive.
Ready.
Colonel.
Marine, what is that button
on your body armor?
A peace symbol, sir.
-Where did you get it?
-I don't remember, sir.
What is that written on your helmet?
Born to kill, sir.
You write born to kill on your helmet
and wear a peace button.
What's that supposed to be,
some kind of sick joke?
-No, sir.
-What is it supposed to mean?
I don't know, sir.
-You don't know much.
-No, sir.
Get your head and your ass wired together
or I will take a shit on you.
-Yes, sir.
-Now answer my question...
... or you'll be standing tall
before the man.
I was trying to suggest something
about the duality of man, sir.
-The what?
-The duality of man. The Jungian thing, sir.
-Whose side are you on, son?
-Our side, sir.
-You love your country?
-Yes, sir.
How about getting with the program.
Jump on the team and come on in
for the big win.
Yes, sir.
All I've asked of my Marines is for them to
obey my orders as they would God's word.
We are here to help the Vietnamese...
... because inside every gook
there is an American trying to get out.
It's a hardball world, son.
We've gotta try to keep our heads
until this peace craze blows over.
Aye, aye, sir.
Hey, bro. We're looking for 1 st Platoon,
Hotel Two-Five.
