S: AaB- Toy Soldiers

At times he regarded the wounded soldiers in an envious way. He conceived persons with torn bodies to be peculiarly happy. He wished that he, too, had a wound, a red badge of courage.
The Red Badge of Courage, Chapter nine

Episode #16:

A bunch of new recruits arrive aboard the Saratoga. Unexpectedly, Nathan collars one of the young men and starts yelling at him. It turns out that the new soldier is none other than Nathan’s brother Neil.
