Scene 16

  • The 2nd Company leaves the Front and goes to the mess line. The cook refuses to serve them until the entire second company arrives, but the men claim they're all present—only 80 of the 150 men aren't dead or in the hospital.
  • It's been a rough week.
  • The cook is upset because he drew rations for 150 men, but Kat argues he cooked food for the 2nd Company, so they should get the whole issue.
  • A fight almost breaks out when the commander appears and orders all the food served to the men.
