Casualites

Previously on Army Wives You're in complete kidney failure.
You people don't work.
You don't help.
You-- All you do is complain! I quit! Captain Galassini.
- Sir.
- The political situation? Eastern Narubu is secure.
Embassy personnel are being evacuated as a precaution, but violence is erupting in the West-- Tribe against government, tribe against tribe.
Well, it's as you predicted.
Operation Javelin is a noncombatant evacuation in Western Narubu.
Should we go operational, your immediate objective will be this abandoned airfield.
It is now being confirmed-- Mary Irakoze, the Peoples' Party candidate in the African nation of Narubu is dead.
So you want to take Rhodes' place on the fast team? Yes, Sir.
With respect, I'm an excellent medic.

Dinner.
As one UN official characterized it, - Narubu is always on the brink of civil war.
- Did you hear me? - It isn't a question of if, but when.
- Mom, you should see this.
To repeat our top story, the white house has sent US troops to evacuate American citizens in the African nation of Narubu.
Elements of the 32nd Airborne Division have parachuted into the Western half of the country, where regional rivalries have erupted following the assassination of presidential candidate Mary Irakoze.
Well, I guess we know where your dad is.
Hey, Gloria.
Hey, Roxy.
Sorry to bother you.
No bother.
What's going on? I can't reach Hector.
What? I keep trying him on his cell, but I can't get through.
Uh, you can't call him when he's on a mission.
Really? Not even text? No.
They don't carry cell phones.
So how am I supposed to know if he's okay? You can't.
You just have to wait.
Wait for what? For official information.
Where do I get that? From me.
I'm your FRG leader.
So do you know anything? Not really.
It's too early.
Oh.
Look Don't worry, Gloria.
One thing I can tell you about the army-- No news is usually good news.
Yeah? Yeah.
I will call you as soon as there's an update.
I promise.
Thanks, Roxy.
Stay strong.
I will.
Good night.
Good night.
Excuse me.
What are you doing up? I can't sleep.
Can I watch some TV? It's a school day tomorrow.
I know.
You know what helps me sleep? Hot chocolate with marshmallows.
Sound good? Yeah.
Okay.
I'll get it started, you go up to bed.
All right.
Hi, Hilarie.
No, I haven't heard anything yet.
Just what's been released, that they're in Africa.
Rally point's just inside that tree line.
Rally point, one click.
Liberty six, this is Dagger six.
We are at Dallas.
Any word on that gunfire? Over.

Proceeding to Tulsa.
Liberty six out.
All right.
We're bringing in the planes.
All right, gentlemen.
Let's get started.
Yes, Sir.
All right, monkey.
It's time for bed.
There you go.
Roxy? Hey, Denise.
You got a minute? - Sure.
What's up? - I'm getting calls from wives who want to know about the deployment.
Yeah.
That's what happens when you're in charge.
Well, what do I say? I don't know anything.
I-I mean, I've never even heard of Narubu until tonight.
You tell them to be patient, that we'll give them details as soon as we get them.
- Yeah, I been doing that.
- And check your e-mails, Rox.
We have an FRG leadership meeting tomorrow morning at 9:00 AM, so we'll go over everything then.
Have you ever heard of Narubu? Yes, but only because Frank's mentioned it in the past.
Right.
Did he tell you anything about it before he left? Mm.
No, he couldn't.
Yeah.
Trevor said he wouldn't even know where they were going until he got on the plane.
Yeah, that's right.
The boys okay? TJ's having trouble sleeping.
Misses his dad, not that he'll admit that to me.
He's at that age.
He wants to be the man of the house.
I know.
It's weird.
It's not like Trevor hasn't deployed before.
But Taking off in the middle of the night, not knowing where he is exactly or how long he'll be gone Hey, we'll get through it.
Yeah.
Call if you need anything.
I will.
Thanks.
Night.
Good night.
Please have your boarding pass ready.
Hey.
Thanks for picking me up.
Of course.
Mm.
How was the conference? Okay.
I should've come home two days ago, but Kevin said, "No, nothing's gonna happen.
" You okay? Yeah, I'm fine.
Sophie called from Exeter, concerned about her father, naturally, and then Patrick texted from West Point.
He's classmates are grilling him for intel, as if I know what the hell is going on or could tell him.
Do you want to go home first? We can move the meeting back.
No.
Don't push yourself too hard.
I always push myself too hard.
You should know that by now.
Your call.
You're gonna hear a lot of crazy rumors in the next few days.
So this happens with every deployment.
Tell your people not to believe everything they see on TV or read online.
I'd say don't believe anything you see on TV, but then you'd know how long I've been doing this.
Tell them the only sources they can trust are you-- The FRG leaders in this room.
Okay, next item, Colonel Joan Burton, Garrison Commander.
Colonel.
Thank you, Mrs.
Clarke.
Rapid deployment creates special stresses because families don't have time to prepare.
So we've expanded the hours at both the family support and youth activity centers.
In addition, the mobilization, deployment, and family readiness office has prepared a packet I'm sure your families will find useful.
If you'll open that packet now, I'd like to walk you through it.
Take it easy, Lieutenant.
Any vascular compromise? - I'm checking.
- Nerves intact? Affirmative.
Does he have a pulse distally? Did you get a pulse? Yes.
We're looking at limb salvage not life salvage.
What's your name, Lieutenant? Webster.
Danny Webster.
Okay, Danny.
You've got an open fracture in your left leg.
I'm gonna clean it, dress it, split it, put you in traction, and buy you a ticket to Germany.
How does that sound? I don't have to go to Germany, doc.
You don't have a choice on this one, Danny.
I'm Company XO.
They'll find a replacement.
Just relax as best you can.
Let us take care of you, okay? What is that? Chloraprep.
I use betadine.
Sir, this is what we've got.
I asked for betadine.
Hurry up.
We got more coming in, okay? Look, I get it that you want to ship him his favorite snickerdoodles, but we don't have a mailing address, Judy.
Yeah, there's no place to send 'em.
I will let you know as soon as I hear.
- No problem at all.
- Okay, bye.
Gloria.
They told me you were here.
Why, are you okay? Just wondering if you heard anything.
No.
Sorry.
Nothing new.
I was going nuts in the apartment.
Then my mother called, said she heard things were getting bad in Africa.
Don't believe everything you hear.
I know, but all I can think about is Hector and what might be happening over there.
It's your first deployment.
You'll get through it.
How? Well, apparently, by coming here and bugging me.
Hey.
We all feel the same way, okay? I'll be right back.
Hey.
I just got a call.
Some soldiers in Trevor's Company were hurt in the night drop.
What? Jump accidents.
No combat.
We're talking broken bones, concussions, cracked ribs.
Who? Well, they're still locating family members, so they haven't released names, but it's just a heads-up.
Yeah, but it could be Trevor.
No, I doubt it.
I'm sure you would've heard by now.
Right.
Okay.
Okay.
Hey, I was wondering if you could make some home visits this afternoon? Yeah, sure.
Okay.
If you need help, let me know.
- Okay.
Thank you.
- Okay.
Bye.
Everything okay? Yeah.
Everything's fine.
General Holden.
Come in, Joan.
Sorry to bother you, Sir.
Oh, I could use a break.
What's up? Protocol question.
Postings about injured soldiers have begun to appear on my web site.
How do you advise I handle them? Anything jeopardizing operational security? Not so far.
Just people looking for information, support.
Then I don't see a problem.
But I would post a reminder about security guidelines and keep a close eye on things.
Thank you, Sir.
How's Claudia Joy? She's good.
Thanks.
She's all settled in at her parents'.
To tell you the truth, I think she's actually enjoying being pampered by her mother.
Glad to hear it, Sir.
Oh, it's funny.
For years, I'm always the one who's been away during deployments, and now here I am, and She's downrange.
She'll be home soon.
Anything else, Colonel? No, Sir.
That's it.
Thank you.
Mm-hmm.
Hi, Min-Ji.
Roxy Leblanc.
Yes, hello.
Listen, I'm so sorry to hear about your husband's injury.
And I was just wondering if there's anything I can do to help.
Oh.
May I come in? Please.
Thank you.
Wow.
I wish my house was this neat.
Thank you.
May I get you anything, tea, water? No, thank you.
I'm good.
How are you? Uh, please, let's sit down.
Okay.
It's a shame about your husband's leg.
And I don't need to tell you, but the FRG is prepared to do anything we can to help.
Thank you.
That's very kind.
Do you need anything-- Food, someone to be with you? No, thank you.
Well, I'm sure you'll want to get to Germany as soon as you can, so I brought some flight schedules-- No.
Oh, sorry.
He-- He's at Landstuhl, right? Let's see.
My information says that Danny's gonna be there at least a week.
He has a compound fracture that needs traction.
Yes, I spoke with him.
He doesn't want me to come.
Really? Why is that? We're getting a divorce.
Oh.
I'm so sorry.
I didn't know.
Attention! As you were.
Our mission is to evacuate American citizens who have been here helping this country-- Doctors, aid workers, engineers.
We want to be quick in, quick out.
We're not here to get involved in local conflicts.
All right, there's half a dozen armed tribes running around out there, all trying to take control of this region, and we do not want to stir that pot.
I want you to follow your escalation of force procedures.
Under no circumstances will we fire the first shot.
You may show them your sword, gentlemen, but do not swing it unless provoked.
Colonel Sherwood.
Thank you, Sir.
Well, this airfield is now secure.
We're gonna keep it that way.
Bravo Company, you have perimeter security, first rotation.
Well, with Afghanistan, my dad knew he was going, like, months in advance.
So we were ready, you know? But th-this time, it was like, bam.
The phone rang, and he was gone.
Well, my mom's a nurse.
And she booked out of the house so fast, she didn't even turn off "Dance Moms.
" So what'd you do? Well, what could I do? I turned off the TV.
I get what you're saying, Dr.
B.
We have to Pick up the pieces.
Go ahead, Monica.
Well, when my dad's on deployment, I drive my brother and sister to school, and my brother cuts the lawn.
So we know our jobs.
You've got a routine.
Yeah, and this is our fourth deployment, so we've got it down.
Your fourth? How many times has your dad deployed, Lauren? Stepdad.
I don't know.
I know he was in Iraq and Afghanistan.
My mom married Pete last year.
He's a Sergeant.
So this is your first deployment.
How's it feel with Pete gone? I don't know.
All I do is watch the news, like I think I'm actually gonna see him or something.
It's stupid.
No.
Why is that stupid? I mean, I've only known Pete like a year, but he's already like The best.
My mom keeps crying and I tell her he's okay, but I don't know that or when he's coming home or anything.
You never knew anyone in the army before your stepdad, huh? Well, you know us now.
That's right.
We're here for each other.
Yeah, and you can text me anytime.
Okay? I'm afraid your information is faulty, ma'am.
N-no one has announced how long the deployment will last.
No one knows.
Yeah, I-I'm sorry.
That's unacceptable.
I have wives of injured soldiers that need to get to Germany today.
Of course.
Check our web site and feel free to call back with any questions.
Fine.
Okay, bye.
Have your supervisor call me back.
You have the number.
Thank you.
This woman is convinced that the troops are gonna be gone six months.
Where did that come from? Who knows? Hey.
Hey.
How'd it go with Min-Ji? Strange.
She's getting divorced.
What? Yeah.
I guess it's pretty recent.
It's funny.
I saw her at the rally point with her husband.
I-I thought something was going on.
Has she told anyone else? I don't think so.
And-- and get this-- Her husband doesn't want her coming to Germany.
That's rough.
Tell me about it.
But she was perfectly calm the whole time.
That's the weird thing.
I mean, I would be screaming or bawling or something.
- Mm-hmm.
- She just sat there.
That's not good, holding everything inside like that.
I know.
I told her I'd sit with her, but I could tell that she didn't want me there.
She's gotta be depressed.
We'll think of something.
Bravo 1-6, this is Delta 2-6.
We're bringing in one casualty.
Urgent.
Delta 2-6, this is Bravo 1-6.
Roger that.
- Open the gate! - It's a medical incoming! What happened, Sergeant? Humvee hit a mine.
They're planting mines? Cruz, they been fighting forever over here.
That mine could be 20 years old.
Who the hell knows where it came from? In here.
Easy, easy, easy.
Easy, easy.
Let's give the doc room.
What do we got? Shrapnel in the chest.
I couldn't stop the bleeding.
Hang in there, Scarpetti.
We're doing a thoracotomy.
What, here? You got a better idea, specialist? No, Sir.
You ever done one of these before, Gabriel? No, Sir.
Well, he's gonna die otherwise.
Let's do it.
Spreading the muscle.
- Can you move that? - Mm-hmm.
Opening the intercostal space.
Gabriel, I'm gonna need you to hold the lung, get it clear of the heart.
Hold the lung.
Got it.
Okay.
Here we go.
Come on.
Come on.
Hi.
Me again.
Yes.
I brought you a little somethin'-somethin' for dinner.
Have you ever had gumbo? Gumbo? Yeah, it's, um, everything good from the Gulf of Mexico, all stirred in a pot.
It's ready to eat.
Or you can heat it later or zap it in the microwave or freeze it if you want to.
Just don't leave it on the counter too long, 'cause it's seafood.
It'll spoil.
Thank you.
So tomorrow our FRG group is putting together aid packages for school kids in Narubu.
We'll be at the community center from 10:00 to noon.
We could really use your help.
I don't think so.
Look I know you had problems with some of the women before, but I'll be there, and I will not let that happen again.
I promise.
Perhaps the trouble was not with them, but with me.
What are you talking about? I did not a good job.
Yes, you did.
No.
I lost my temper.
I disgraced my husband.
You did no such thing.
Everyone knows I failed.
Look, I was there.
Those women were horrible to you.
And I know how hard you tried to do a good job.
There's no disgrace in that.
You are not a failure, Min-Ji.
L-- My first marriage ended in divorce, too.
But I-I just picked myself up and moved on.
And then I met Trevor, and my life Totally turned around.
It can happen.
They say more tears are shed over answered prayers than unanswered ones.
You lost me there.
When I met Danny in Korea, my parents were angry.
They didn't want me falling for an American soldier, moving away from family.
But I prayed Danny would ask me to marry him.
Then One day, he did.
And here I am Prayer answered.
Min-Ji, you can't sit home all day feeling bad.
You've gotta get out and get on with your life.
Baby steps first.
FRG meeting tomorrow Community center? No.
Thank you.
All right, well, I'm not leaving until you at least say that you'll think about it.
Okay.
Ah, I'm serious now.
Thank you for coming.
Okay.
Gabriel.
I just heard Sergeant Scarpetti made it to Germany.
They think he'll make it.
Thank God.
Yeah, I thought you'd want to know.
- Thanks.
- Mm-hmm.
By the way, I put in an order for betadine.
Oh.
Well, I hope we're not here long enough for it to arrive.
And chloraprep is fine.
I'm just used to what I'm used to is all.
Yes, Sir.
Boy, I thought Africa was supposed to be hot.
Yeah, things cool off up here in the mountains.
I guess so.
Buy you a cup of coffee? Something against coffee or-- No.
Um Someone else asked me that once in a combat zone, um, a soldier in Afghanistan, and And? Long story.
Oh.
Well, uh Nice work in there.
Thank you.
You, too, Sir.
Mm.
Gabriel.
Yes, Sir.
Uh Never mind.
Mrs.
Scarpetti? I'm Jackie Clarke, and this is Denise Sherwood.
We heard about your husband and wondered if we could be of any help.
Oh, yes, please.
Come in.
This is my daughter Monica.
- Hello.
- Hi.
Hi, Monica.
Honey, this is Mrs.
Clarke and Mrs.
Sherwood.
They're here from the FRG.
Has something else happened? No.
No, our information is that your father's in critical but stable condition in Germany.
Yes, that's what we heard, too.
I have a plane ticket for tomorrow night.
Can I get you anything? Oh, no, please, Mrs.
Scarpetti, Carol.
Carol, please don't worry about us.
Can we have a seat? They called about an hour ago.
They said Steve's humvee went over a mine? Yeah, that's-- That's our information.
He's gonna be okay, though, right? Mm-hmm.
Well, if he's at Landstuhl, then he's getting the best possible care.
I told you.
Well, hello.
Ben, what are you doing up? Is daddy okay? He's gonna be fine, honey.
I miss daddy.
Uh, come on.
Back to bed, mister.
I'll read you a story? I'll be up in a minute, sweetheart.
You have beautiful children.
Thank you.
Do you have children, Mrs.
Sherwood? Yes.
I do.
Um I have a little girl.
She's 1.
Just starting out.
I have a son at West Point and a daughter at boarding school.
So you know.
It's so hard on the kids.
When Steve got back from Afghanistan, he said maybe it was time to think about taking his 20, moving on.
He really wants to coach Ben's basketball team.
They'd map out plays.
It's okay.
It's okay.
Well, it's not perfect intel, Lieutenant, but clearly, things are heating up in sector six.
A tribal militia is reportedly heading toward the medical clinic.
We originally had the clinic lower on our priority list.
It's just been bumped up.
There are three Americans at the clinic, a doctor and two nurses.
We're stretched thin at present.
I can only give you a squad, but your mission is to immediately extract the medical team.
Have you confirmed your grid coordinates with the S-3? Yes, Sir.
We've also received indications that a rival militia is operating in the area, so you need to be alert for both groups.
These militias kidnap children, Lieutenant.
They train them to torture and kill, so don't be fooled by appearances.
These kids will blow you away if ordered.
So stick to the rules of engagement.
But if anyone's going down, you make sure it's them and not you.
Ooh-ah? Roger that, Sir.
Alright, Lieutenant.
Good luck.
We'll see you back here tonight.
We'll be here, Sir.
Open the gate! Can you handle these calls? Thank you.
Hey.
Hey, I thought you were taking the morning off.
I couldn't sleep.
What are you doing here? Oh, I'm just on my way to work.
Wanted to see what was going on.
Quiet for the moment.
No news.
For now.
Exactly.
Hey, why don't you take a break? I can cover for a half-hour.
After these calls.
Jackie, you're exhausted.
I-I never sleep well when Kevin's away.
I'll handle those.
You need time to recharge.
I mean it.
You're right.
You know, I-I'm no good to anyone else if my head's not clear.
This isn't about anyone else, Jackie.
It's about you.
I suppose a walk could do me good.
Yeah, absolutely.
Okay, doctor.
- Uh, Jackie.
- Yeah? Right.
Thanks.
Make sure every bag gets the same number of pencils and crayons And plenty of paper.
They can't get this stuff over there? They told me they need everything.
The school I went to ran out of pencils every year.
Where was that, Mexico or something? P6S 169, The Bronx.
The small stuff matters.
Hello.
Hi, mom.
Finn, are you all right? Yes.
I need my permission slip for the field trip.
Finn, I asked you about that this morning.
You said it was in your backpack.
- I thought it was.
- Well, where is it? I don't know.
I think I left it on the dresser.
They won't let me go without it.
Okay.
I will bring it right over there.
Thanks, mom.
Hey, I have to run home to pick something up for my son.
Can you keep things going? Me? Yeah.
Just make sure everything gets into boxes.
Okay.
Okay, good.
Thank you.
Uh, better set out ten extra chairs.
I got more calls this morning.
Got it.
Monica.
What's wrong? Oh.
It's my dad.
Honey, honey, what-- what happened? - I'm sorry.
- It's okay.
There's nothing to be sorry about.
Come on.
Sit down.
What's going on? Um, his humvee was hit.
It was a land mine or something.
And they flew him to Germany, and he's in critical condition.
Oh, Monica, I'm so sorry.
Hey.
They have outstanding doctors at Landstuhl.
I know.
I've been there.
Really? My wife was wounded in Iraq.
Your dad is in great hands.
Believe me.
That's what they told us.
My mom's flying there tonight.
What about you? I have to stay here and help my aunt look after my brother.
How could this happen? What if he doesn't make it? I don't know what I'd do without my dad.
Ex-excuse me.
Is she okay? Yeah, don't worry about Charlie.
She'll be fine.
Let's talk about you, okay? Naturally, you're worried about your dad.
You can't help it.
No one could.
The key is to keep your fears under control.
How? Like you told the group the other day-- You focus on what you need to do.
For example, when you walk out of here, what's the first thing you gotta take care of? Um Make sure my mom's finished packing, I guess.
Mm-hmm.
And then I have to help my aunt figure out what to make for dinner.
There you go.
What else? Hey.
Thanks for coming by.
I'm Gloria Cruz.
Min-Ji.
Min-Ji Webster.
Min-Ji, nice to meet you.
Where's Roxy? She had to run out for a minute.
Oh.
She should be back soon.
Her boy needed something at school.
For the children.
Aw, thanks.
What is it? Candy from Korea.
Seriously? We're packing school supplies, Min-Ji, not candy.
You know, paper and pencils for school? Oh.
I think it's nice.
What kid doesn't like candy? We're not allowed to put food in there, Gloria.
I think there's a law or something.
What are you talking about? People mail food all the time.
Yeah, to our soldiers maybe.
But sending food to children in Africa? I mean, what if they got sick? Yeah, they'd say we poisoned them or something.
Wait.
Don't go.
Please just forget 'em.
You two suck, you know that? Hey, we're not the ones who brought candy.
No, you just brought your big fat mouths.
Whatever.
Hey.
You want to talk about it? I just feel bad for Monica.
That's all.
Look, you don't have to tell me, but please don't lie to me, Charlie.
I have a soldier over there In Africa.
Really? You're involved with a soldier? Is it serious? Someone I know? I don't think so.
Well, what's his name? Her name is Nicole.
Nicole Galassini.
She's a Captain in Intelligence.
Right.
No one knows about us.
No one in the army anyway.
Sh-she doesn't want anyone to know.
I'm all alone.
Hey, you're not alone.
Hey.
Come here.
I'm going in.
Esparza, Nader, go with the lieutenant.
Forman, Holt, cover the back.
The rest of you, out front.
Let's set a perimeter.
Man, am I glad to see you.
- Dr.
Schulman? - Yeah, that's me.
Where's the rest of your team? They're in the supply shed, gathering what they can.
- We can't take much.
- Not much to take.
Okay, we gotta get moving.
There are reports of armed militants in the area.
Come on.
Such a tragedy.
This whole country could go up in smoke.
a situation out here.
Roger that.
Stay here.
Allez! Allez! Okay, nobody shoots, you understand? Just stay cool.
So what's the current situation? Over.
They've blocked the road with three pickups.
We count 18 hostiles with automatic weapons.
Their leader says they want Dr.
Schulman.
Over.
- Did they say why? - Negative.
He says the rest of us can go if we hand over the doctor.
That's a nonstarter.
Do not-- repeat-- do not hand over the doctor.
Over.
Wilco.
Could you fight your way past if you had to? Affirmative.
We got the 50-Cal and a 240 trained on key targets, Sir.
Wait one.
We'd wipe 'em out in a second.
Yeah, no doubt, Sir.
But one squad against we could take casualties.
Let me go, Sir.
I know the tribe.
I can talk to them.
What do you mean? I've been here before, Sir.
The Abaranda are probably the least aggressive tribe in this part of the country.
There's gotta be more to the story.
Let me talk to them.
I prefer a negotiation to an international incident.
Frank, how long would it take to get there? Under an hour, Sir.
Bravo one, Liberty six.
We want to send you a negotiator.
Do you think you can stall for an hour? Over.
Affirmative.
Sir, we could tell them we're seeking authority to give them the doctor.
Whatever it takes, 1-6.
We're trying to avoid hostilities, but I do not want you to compromise the safety of your men.
If you come into contact, you are free to engage.
Roger that.
Stand by, 1-6.
We're gonna help you.
Frank? Okay, Captain.
Get moving.
Yes, Sir.
Rig's all ready to go, Sir.
Well, good luck, Captain.
Thank you, Sir.
Sorry.
It took 20 minutes to find the darn permission slip.
It was in his sock drawer.
And then there was an overturned semi on the way back.
Traffic is a mess.
What's the matter? Min-Ji was here.
What? When? Right after you left.
Where is she now? She took off.
Why? Ask them.
Are you kidding me? Excuse me.
What happened? How much longer, Sergeant? As long as it takes, Cruz.
It's only been 20 minutes.
Yeah, it feels like an hour.
Relax.
I'm trying, but this kid's pointing his AK at me like he's about to light me up.
You only fire if fired upon.
Clear? Clear? Yes, Sergeant.
Attaboy.
Don't worry, Cruz.
We're gonna get you home.
Sir.
The men are getting antsy.
Hell, I'm getting antsy.
They're just kids, some of 'em.
Kids with AK-47s, Sir.
And not to spoil your day or anything, but Fitzpatrick thinks he saw a mortar system in the back of one of the trucks.
Let's hope he's wrong.
So what do we know about this negotiator they're sending? She's a Captain in Intelligence.
She? Oh, yeah.
Good luck with that.
Min-Ji, it's Roxy.
Hello? Oh, my God.
