Added DiffLines:

* VeteranInstructor: Granger again, passing on his knowledge and experience to the Marines in a TrainingFromHell fashion not entirely unlike a DrillSergeantNasty. Austin considers him downright abusive.

Added DiffLines:

* CunningLinguist: Meg Austin and one of the Marines are both fluent in Spanish, and serve as translators at various points in this episode.


Added DiffLines:

* TheSquadette: Austin as always, but in particular this episode has her climbing up and over the embassy walls in her Navy uniform while doing her investigation. She also chafes heavily when confronted by the Gunny over this later (he doesn't want her outside the embassy without a guard, and she doesn't appreciate what she sees as unwarranted coddling.)
