Storyline

Saunders' and Hanley's platoon is joined by a replacement soldier from Georgia named Moseby Lovelace, who comes complete with a new set of boots that the other troops, especially Saunders, highly covet. Lovelace is eager to see action, but not interested in the ordinary work of soldiering, such as digging foxholes. He jumps at the chance to join a night reconnaissance patrol headed by Hanley that will check to see whether the Germans have pulled back their lines. Written by aldanoli

Goofs

About halfway through the episode, Lovelace (John Bolt) sits on the bank of the creek where he is eventually forced to abandon his new boots. As he settles into place and begins to soak his feet, one can twice hear the creak of wood coming from what is supposed to be the dirt bank he is sitting on, revealing that it is actually a wooden soundstage, not a real creek bank.
