Synopsis
A sergeant feels doomed after he alone survives an artillery shell that wipes out his squad. He treks through snow wondering about, "Something else I'm supposed to do before they pick up my dogtags?" He wanders and saves GIs by blowing up a machine nest, pulling tankers free, downing a plane. Finally he finds lost green recruits and sends them to safety while he holds off Nazis. They find his corpse. "Look at the smile on his face!"
