USO Down

On a reconnaissance mission, BRAVO co. runs into a USO band whose copter has been downed. As they try to get the civilians back to safety , our guys must deal with their temporary fellow soldiers. LONG JOHN, the band’s leader is a war monger who has been unable to enlist due to his epilepsy but is eager to do some killing. COLLINS is a frightened, neurotic sax player. COLBY (one of two women) is cold to the men, especially Percell , because she has already lost two soldier/boyfriends in Nam . APRIL is the calmest and the strongest of the group. In the end ,Long John’s overzealous behaviour gets Collin killed. But, He then sacrifices his own life to save Zeke.
