Characters
U.S. Army Sergeant; a new recruit (death); U.S. soldiers [Powers (death); Stofka (death); Bryant Kitchens (death); rest un-named]
Synopsis
The new recruits were obviously nervous, awaiting the order from the Sergeant to go over the top toward the Jerries. One in particular stuck close to the Sergeant, who promised to "show him the ropes", when all of a sudden, a German machine gun opened up on them, causing the friendly forces to retreat. The young recruit, wounded, was hung up in the barbed wire and screaming for help, and two soldiers advanced to help....and were killed, and then another. The Sergeant did the only thing he could: he mercifully shot the recruit.
