Episode Summary

EDIT
Then Came the Mighty Hunter
AIRED:
After a tough mission, Gallagher needs a new gunner. Cpl. Corbett is a new replacement in from the states and has a perfect gunnery score (1000, Komansky only has 400). Komansky finds him by looking at records, once he meets Corbett he realizes it is the same new guy who made an earlier scene about wanting to kill Germans. He still recommends him to Col. Gallagher. Cpl. Corbett takes over from the wounded Staff Sergeant Abbott as Left Waist gunner on Gallagher's crew. During his first training mission he spots the target first, but his gun jams. The other gunners kid him and he does not join in the after hours fun at the Star & Bottle. This bothers Col. Gallaher who needs a team on his ship not loners. Komansky adopts Corbett and helps him, they go to another pub and Corbett meets Gillian. On the next practice mission, Corbett spots a real German FW and shoots it down. He gets promoted to buck Sergeant on the spot, but is upset by killing someone. Going into shock, he admits he's almost 16 (still 15). Col. Gallagher orders him to the base hospital to rest, but then goes AWOL to see Gillian at the pub. He returns to the base and agrees not to talk another walk. In the morning he sneaks aboard for the next mission. Hachensberg is the target. After seeing the other gunners hit and killed, Corbett takes over ands performs well. On the ground Col. Gallagher chews him out, turning him over to the MP, who will deliver him to the Red Cross, and insure he stays with them till he returns home. After Sgt. Corbett leaves Gallagher orders Komansky to tell Major Stovall to cut orders promoting him to Staff Sergeant before his discharge. He also orders Komansky to write up the events of the mission for his signature and personal recommendation for a Silver Star.moreless
