US Army Rockets Launched GV "Honest John" rockets on launch trucks in field, sample of the US Army's first nuclear capable surface-to-surface missiles on their launchers, soldier talks on field telephone in FG. MCU soldier in FG adjusting small battery. MS man placing battery inside compartment of rocket cone, two soldiers looking on, one being a young African American man. GV launcher with rocket being prepared, man placing things inside cone compartment. GV launcher positioned in field. Nice MS soldier in trench, pushing down on the remote detonation / launching plunger. GV rocket blasting off launcher, pan as it soars parallel to the ground.
