Sands of Iwo Jima

Major Crowe, sir.
- Jim? How you doing?
- "It's tough going, Dave".

I've committed every man.
We're dug in and staying.

Good. I've been getting reports all day
that the Nips are slipping in to your front.

If it's "banzai" tonight,
target area 2-41 is a hot spot.

What outfit have you got there?
Joyce and Stryker.
Pass the word they gotta dig in
and stay put.

No noise or movement.
Don't risk anybody unless you have to.
Hold on until we get more men there.

Yes, sir.
Major Crowe says the Nips have been
filtering into these tank traps.

Disperse your squad along this section.
Tell your men there's to be no smoking,
no moving or unnecessary talking.

If they find out how thin we are,
they can get to the beach.

That's a platoon area. All I got's
a beat-up squad, short three men.

- Couldn't you...?
- Can I give you three men?

The battalion can't give the whole
company three replacements.

Your squad is covering
the hottest spot in the line.

If it's an attack tonight they'll strike you
first. They want to know our disposition.

I repeat, your men are not to move.
- Aye, aye, sir.
- Stryker, we're going to hold this line.

- Aye, aye, sir.
- Good luck.
