1962, the United States confronted one of the most bloody and terrible war in history, the Vietnam War. An American detachment was in a bunker south of Vietnam, the base of operations known as "Hangar 18" by Lt. Victor "Rattlehead" Megadeth, a military frontline, always true to his values and his men. Since coming to the military was prominent among his peers for his cool headand always attentive, but smart turn skilled in the field. Before traveling the world to go to defend the interests of his country, left a wife 8 months pregnant. But it took three years in war and never saw his son, James.
04:30 hrs, expected a cloudy day, the command center orders were simple: they had to maintain their position, Vietnamese spies from the U.S. had warned them that theVietnamese were plans to surround the position, not attacking it frontally, therefore going to have a few quiet days, a short time without war.
Peace Sells, but who’s buying?
Lieutenant "Rattlehead" slept peacefully, dreaming of his anticipated return, when a chill ran through him, 'something is wrong ... - thought. One of the soldiers checked the radar had begun to utter cries, but I was so sleepythat he thought it was a dream, his loyal sergeant Mustaine woke him saying, 'We're under fire lieutenant, wake up please! - Lieutenant gets up hastily and will have a look at the radar opens his eyes surprised, Vietnamese troops attacked! ... But how?! Its location was undetectable, nervous soldiers run to seek orders his lieutenant. Without thinking over a second Rattlehead sends for the weaponsand the counterattack, with no preparation, insufficient time, the atmosphere was tense, only heard piercing screams of wounded men, gunshots and explosions.
Suddenly, an explosion destroyed the place, a bomb undetected by radar.

Among many voices you can hear the words about what they would do with it - ... Prepare the patients scalp to peelaway, metal caps his ears, he’ll hear not what we say.
