Able Company sends their "greenest apple" new guy back for more ammo. He dodges machine gun fire but gets back with ammo - too late. "Able Company stopped them with empty guns! What can I do?" He loads the guns of the dead men and waits. When the Nazis attack, he runs from gun to gun - and runs out of ammo. He readies a one-man bayonet charge as reinforcements arrive. How did men hold the line with empty guns? "Then they looked at my face and got the answer!"
