Storyline

The effects of service careers on family life and relationships are felt most strongly at holidays, when duty often makes it impossible for people to be with their loved ones. In this episode, it's a day or two to Christmas, and events are threatening to upset people's holiday plans. In Afghanistan, a group of the Taliban is likely to take shelter in a small village. The Major must overcome bureaucratic and logistical obstacles to get food and guns to the villagers before the Taliban reach it. Meanwhile, his father, himself a retired special forces soldier, visits the Pentagon seeking copies of his service record to support a medical claim with the VA. Sonny Liston helps him; as we discover, father and son are barely on speaking terms. Written by A Red Fish

Goofs

At one point in this episode, soldiers are destroying a bridge with explosives. They plant the bombs to the weak spots of the bridge, but when they explode, the whole bridge blows up. That small amount of pretty much any explosive couldn't have that kind of effect to the bridge. And if they would be that destructible there wouldn't be any need to plant the bombs to the weak spots.
