Saigon: Part 1
Pilot Lt. McKay says rock ‘n roll is here to stay and blasts it from his chopper. He flies back to where Bravo Company is pinned down by VC and joins the fight from the air, playing rock ‘n roll the whole time. Alex Devlin, a reporter, is working a drug story but learns from Jake Bridger, the owner of a hotel in Saigon, that there has been a big increase in VC activity all around with the Tet coming. Taylor and Johnson want to invest in a hotel chain with Bridger, even though Anderson warns them that Bridger is a hustler. Anderson meets with his ex-wife in Saigon.
