Synopsis for the 1st Story

In 1988, Battlestone accidentally killed a lieutenant during a U.S. operation in Kuwait. Diehard removed him as leader of Youngblood, and Chapel took him into custody.  Now, Battlestone drops from a helicopter into the mountain home of his mentor, Cartwright, whom he has been sent to kill.  Cartwright easily dodges and deflects Stone’s attacks, chastising him for his rage.  Years ago, Battlestone was spared a formal court martial, but Graves fired him from Youngblood.  In the present, Cartwright continues to outwit Stone until he accidentally falls over a cliffside.  Barely hanging on, he begs Battlestone to pull him up, saying he knows Stone is still a good man.  Stone holds onto Cartwright briefly then lets him go, sending him plunging into a pond at the bottom of the canyon below.
