In Korea, Gunner Hogan is given a bazooka. But he was a "strike-out" in baseball before the war, and keeps missing here in Korea. The sarge or someone else always cleans up or pinch-hits for him. He resolves to "belt a TNT homer this time!" But, nope, can't kill a tank or a pillbox. Later the platoon is sent on a parachute drop. And Hogan finds he can bazooka Migs out of the air, shoot enemy rolling guns, and even drop rockets over a ridge to clobber a bridge!
