A shadowy operative tells him that they will erase his tarnished military records, but he must make sure that a recon team follows all orders. This sounds easy, but the issue is that there is so much that he doesn’t know. Sergeant First Class John Nicholas and the Elite Recon Team New York alongside Captain Brandon wind up deep in North Vietnam working to rescue Recon Team Florida.
