Interlocking fields of fire

Lieutenant M.R. Ring:
[approaching platoon]
Good morning, men!
[responding to salute]

Lieutenant M.R. Ring:
Thank you, Gunny. What a marvelous day for a military exercise. Men, today we'll will execute an ambush on a numerically superior force using cover, interlocking fields of fire, and the natural aggressiveness of the United States Marine.
Corporal 'Stitch' Jones:
You show me some poontang and I'll show you an aggressive Marine.
Lieutenant M.R. Ring:
We will provide Major Powers and his elite fighting force an accessible target to sharpen their superior skills. This will be facilitated by the MILES gear that each man is wearing. As you know, when one of our men is shot this laser sensitive device emits a beeping noise.
Highway:
Excuse me, Lieutenant, but are you suggesting that we don't fight back?
Lieutenant M.R. Ring:
Well, no, Gunny, Major Powers like to use the Recon platoon as a training tool.
Highway:
Well, what happens when these men have to go into combat and they're not prepared? They just get dead.
Lieutenant M.R. Ring:
Yes, I see what you mean.
Highway:
Have you spoken to Major Powers about this?
Lieutenant M.R. Ring:
Let's move them out, Gunny.
Highway:
Are you coming with us, Lieutenant?
Lieutenant M.R. Ring:
Uh, no, Gunny. I have a doctor's appointment at 1100.
Highway:
Well, let's hope it's not something that'll keep you out of the next war. Platoon, ten-hut! Sling arms! Right face! Forward march!

Transcript:
What a fine morning for a military exercise.
Men...
...today we will execute an ambush against
a numerically superior hostile force...
... by using cover, surprise,
interlocking fields of fire...
...and the natural aggressiveness
of the United States Marine.
Show me some poontang,
I'll show you an aggressive Marine!
We'll provide Major Powers
and his elite force...
...an accessible target
to sharpen their superior skills.
This will be facilitated by
the MILES Gear each team will wear.
When one of our men is shot, these
laser-sensitive vests emit a beeping noise.
Excuse me, Lieutenant?
Are you hinting that we don't fight back?
Yes, Gunney. The Major likes to use
the Recon Platoon as a training tool.
What happens when these men go
into combat and they're not prepared?
They just get dead.
Yes. I see what you mean.
Did you discuss this with Major Powers?
- Let's move them out, Gunney.
- Are you coming with us, Lieutenant?
No, Gunney.
I have a doctor's appointment at 1100.
I hope it's nothing that will keep you
out of the next war.
Platoon, right face.
Sling arms.
Forward march.
Are you sure Highway's our man
to run the ambush?
He's the best I know at small unit tactics.
I doubt that.
Marines, today we're going to kick
some Recon ass.
Attention! About face!
Forward march!
When I first joined the Corps...
... I thought I'd be jumping out of planes,
and fighting the enemy.
This is the new, modern, mechanized
Marine Corps. We'll jump out of our heads.
The only enemy we're fighting is boredom.
You hear that voice?
It's calling me, Hollywood.
Stitch Jones is going be
a rock and roll star.
Don't forget us when you
make it to the top.
Front row center seat, and all the girls
I can't eat for my homeboy.
I love leftovers.
Unsling your rifles.
You're making too much noise.
Why? We're not supposed to win.
He watches too much prime time.
- What was that?
- You're dead, Marine.
You tripped on four booby traps
that blew your legs off...
...and we have to send out a search party
for your testicles. Where's your backup?
Profile.
What good are you back there?
Without any cover fire, I get shot.
