Outside of Al Kut, Captain America is over-eager in his attempts to subdue a prisoner, while his men's growing disillusionment with his command is growing more apparent. Meanwhile, Ferrando relays to his officers the news that his counterpart in the Regimental Combat Team has been relieved of duty despite achieving his objective. Encino Man takes Ferrando's speech to heart and puts Fick on notice that there will be no more questioning of his orders. First Recon's next mission is to escort civilians fleeing from Baghdad down the highway. Colbert and the others realize that with Baghdad being the next stop for the American forces, their war has probably come to an end, which rankles Ferrando, who itches to get back in the game. First Recon heads to Baqubah, a town north of Baghdad, to go up against Iraqi armor--a situation that leads to a number of mishaps.
