Episode Summary

EDIT
Sitting Ducks
AIRED:
The platoon is moved to an area where an irrigation project is underway, and they have been given the "cushy" job of providing security for engineers working there. The irrigation project is part of the "Redevelopment Program" to bring modern technology to the peasants of Vietnam. Bravo Co arrives to relieve, only to find that the CO was killed while taking out a patrol. It seems that the VC know the American's every move. Before the old outfit leaves, they introduce Goldman and Anderson to their Kit Carson scout -- an ex-VC, named Tran. Tran advises more patrols to counter the problem, and Goldman agrees. But everytime the Americans leave the village they are ambushed. Meanwhile, Horn has become fascinated with the Buddhists. During his visits with the priest in his search for understanding, Horn accidentally discovers how the GI's are being set up: it is the monks, using their temple bell.moreless
