The kids get their stuff, which includes laser harnesses which go off if they get "hit" during the training mission. A soldier who looks like Hitler demonstrates it. If the sound goes off on the harness, you're hit and are no longer playing. Blair helpfully explains that it's like multi-million dollar laser tag. Thanks, Blair. Go have a pie.
Now dressed in fatigues and on the field, Staff Sergeant France does some more training. Maybe Katie heard one of the teacher's names was France and somehow thought that's where they were going. He leads the kids through "Rush and Roll." The kids run and drop and run and roll and crawl and he's yelling and "it's a team effort!" and now it's raining and they're done running and shit. Man, I would like to be France for a day and get to make Adam and Ellen drop and roll and crawl and run into a tree and shit. I sort of think, after all this time, I deserve it. Now France is telling them the importance of teamwork, and how if they lose a man or two on their team, that's less people they'll then have on that team. Hmmm. Good point. Sophia gives the Quote of the Day as she floats, "If someone got shot, that would just suck." Indeed, dog. They are going to do a training mission, and France explains that they'll need leaders to make quick decisions, and Steve floats that his dad is a Lieutenant Colonel and he is just like his dad in terms of being a leader and Sophia agrees and he floats that Adam is going to be leader of one group and he'll lead the other. Um, I'd want to be on Steve's team. Adam floats that Steve is leading and he's just "bringing up the rear." Oh, Adam. Why do you have to make it so easy for me?
The mission starts and people are "firing" at them through the trees and the kids drop in the mud and France is helping them, asking them what they see down that road, and there's a dead "body" and they run to it and drop and there is pink smoke and firing and Katie is laughing and France is yelling that someone needs to be a leader as Adam voice-overs that no one needs to be Rambo and Steve voice-overs that they need to hurry and get the body out of the war zone and alla sudden Steve's harness goes off -- he's hit.
