It Can't Be Done!

Notes: The Korean War. The American marines have their Communist enemies on the run until Chinese frogmen blow up a large bridge that the Americans are crossing while in pursuit. This leaves one marine batallion stranded on the enemy side of the river where they will soon have to face the much larger force of Communist soldiers. Then Captain Horn gets the idea to bring a bridge to the site. His men are sceptical but the men of the quartermaster airborne air supply and packaging company prove that it can be done thus saving the trapped battallion and forcing their enemies to go on the run again. - Joe Moore.

The Korean War. The American army is pushing its way through the Giosong Valley and T/Sgt. Tony Bryant and his men are the signal unit assigned to the company. They keep the lines of communication between the various units and divisions open so that co-ordinated attacks can be made. While the signal corp. men are told to stay to the rear they manage to get in their share of the fighting and still keep the communication lines open. -Joe Moore.

The Wind-Mill!

Notes: The Korean War. Lieutenant Vic Kirby is in a foul mood when he gets his jet back to base after a rough combat mission. He first chews out his crew of mechanics and when he gets into the clubhouse he nearly gets into a fight with helicopter (referred to derisively by him as a "windmill") pilot Lieutenant Pitcarin whom he doesn't consider worthy of being called a pilot because he feels heliopter pilots have it easy and don't participate in combat the way jet pilots do. After a couple of days of rest Kirby is back in combat and is shot down and captured by the Communist army. His fellow jet pilots strafe the enemy soldiers and Kirby runs for it. He is rescued by a helicopter that bravely faces heavy enemy fire to get to the downed flyer. It turns out that the helicopter is piloted by Pitcarin whom Kirby now has a whole new respect for. - Joe Moore.

Notes: The Korean War. Captain Marlin is troubled because he is scheduled to send a barrage against the Communist enemies command post across the valley. After he gets his final orders and carries them out the command post is reduced to rubble and the Captain is in near despair. We find out that this is because his son was being held prisoner at the post. And that he had to choose between not shelling and saving his son or carrying through with the barrage and saving many other American infantry troops. He is called back to headquarters and there is shown is son, Alan, alive. Alan had,luckily, been in the cellar of the Communist command post and survived with only some broken bones. - Joe Moore.
