Things In Common
Both Matthews and Johnson were sergeants.
Both put themselves in harms way
Fought to save a partner
Both Matthews and Johnson single- handedly fought enemies
Both were selfless
: Johnson single- handedly took down 24 german enemies, mostly in hand to hand combat to save his partners life. Henry courageously took down enemies, even though through most of his fight, he had nothing except his fists.
: Matthews single- handedly attacked while he was under fire by an enemy machine gun position which was preventing the evacuation of a wounded soldier. He sacrificed his life so that his comrade could get away
The year is now 1945, Daniel Paul Mathews is waiting to be called into the Korean war. Meanwhile sergeant Henry Johnson has just passed away after WWI.......
Paul Mathews sits in his bed thinking about all the things that might go wrong while he is on the battle field. Mathews quickly looks away and glances at an old book from world war 1. He notices the front cover, which is a picture of sergeant Henry Johnson. He then begins to read the book and realizes the ultimate sacrifice Johnson made. He then questions if he will be able to do the same if he finds his group in danger, he begins to doubt that he would be able to go above and beyond the call of duty risking his life to safe his comrades.
Beyond The Call of Duty
Fast forward to later that night Mathews is fast asleep and receives a message in his dream. Johnson begins to tell his story of how he defeated so many enemy troops using nothing but a knife. “He explains that a true leader has the confidence to stand alone, the courage to make tough decisions and the compassion to listen to the needs of others. He does not set out to be a leader but becomes one by the equality of his actions and the integrity of his intent.
Fast forward to movement day..... Mathews is in the helicopter and recites the quote Johnson gave him the night before. A legend is now born for Mathews realizes he has nothing to be afraid of, and when the time comes he will be the first one to put his life on the line to save his troop memebers.
