When Donatello and Leonardo fall asleep on a bus to Trenton, New Jersey, they accidentally end up as new recruits at Fort Dix. There, they are conscripted into the army as "Private Atello" and "Private Nardo", respectively. Heartbreak drills them hard, but having trained as ninja for their entire lives, they excel at everything and are only bothered by being forced to miss sleep. Eventually, after he receives word from his superior that terrorists are planning a heist at their ammo dump, Heartbreak feels good enough about Atello and Nardo that he calls them his "best men" and assigns them to guard duty. He is then thoroughly impressed when they foil the heist.
