Navy beach masters are known as the traffic cops of the beach and host R. Lee Ermey travels to Coronado Naval Base to find out how they get the job done and checks out their gear, including the new LARC, a floating tow truck used for search and rescue. Next, Lee travels to the Defense Language Institute in Monterrey, California, where military personnel learn how to speak Afghani, Korean, Arabic, and other languages in a flash. In this installment of "GI Jargon", the Gunny explains origins of the word "hooch". And we get a tour of the Gunny's new digs--a state-of-the-art Eureka MPTGS Type 3 tent with internal arch configuration. Then, he takes us back to the end of WWII and the raid at Cabanatuan. Not a lot of people know about it, but this raid by Army Rangers, Alamo Scouts, and Filipino guerrillas saved the lives of more than 500 POWs in the Philippines. Then, Lee demonstrates the Arisaka rifle, the bolt-action rifle used by the Japanese Imperial Army.
