Storyline

Privates Vinnick (Sal Mineo) and Burke (Tom Skerritt) have been together since basic training and are assigned to Hanley's platoon. Vinnick is a street wise city kid who is fearless in battle. Burke, on the other hand, is paralyzed by fear when a firefight begins. Vinnick's contempt for Burke is obvious as is Burke's hatred for Vinnick. The episode opens with a firefight where Burke is frozen in fear. Vinnick charges a German MG-42 emplacement, and Hanley tells them he will recommend Vinnick for a Bronze Star. Later, Hanley receives a message that Vinnick is wanted back in the states on a murder warrant. Hanley disarms Vinnick and intends to turn him over to the MPs, but Vinnick manages to get away. Wanting to capture his nemesis, Burke goes hunting for Vinnick. In the end, the basic character of both men holds true. Mineo and Skerritt give stellar performances. Written by David Wile
