So it all started when I was in church and I suddenly ask myself, “What ever happened to 2nd Platoon lieutenant?”. Since Mac was the platoon sergeant, he should be following order from his platoon leader, who should be a second lieutenant. He could probably be that lieutenant that you saved on one of the missions in RTH30 but I doubted it very much.
I also wondered what happened to 1st squad. Since Red commands 2nd and Baker’s 3rd, who got 1st? Is it the squad that Rendoc put in the mod?
Now, if you follow the chain of command, who is in charge of Fox Company? Who is it XO? We knows that Cole commands 3rd Battalion and then we never heard much from the XO since we (somehow) under the commands of Colonel Sink of the 506th. That being said, how come we never hear much from the battalion commander of the 502nd?
No, Cole didn’t lead the 502nd, it was LTC Michaelis, but then a German shell landed near the regimental CP, hitting all the officers there so the command went to 2nd Battalion commander, LTC Steve Chappuis.
In Hell’s Highway, it was shown that Mac became the Company first sergeant or the HQ first sergeant, leaving 2nd platoon sergeant without a spot, and we still hadn’t heard from the platoon leader.
What do you guys think?
