One day, American soldiers appeared to him, apparently sent by President Harry Truman. The M.P. tried to explain to them that they were in a restricted area and that they couldn't pass. However, this didn't serve, because the M.P. was gunned down when Truman's men, actually Soviet soldiers, opened fire on all the base guards. His body was then dragged away from the guard hut entrance.
Behind the scenesEdit
The M.P. in Guard Hut was portrayed by Kevin Collins in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Collins also served as the technical advisor (military) for the film. In the film, he wears the uniform of the US Air Force's Air Police.
Since no names are given for the policemen on guard in the movie, it remains unclear whether he is the M.P. in Guard Hut is identical to one of the MPs Higgins and Mitchell who appear in the film's novelization.
In LEGO Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues, the M.P. of the Guard Hat's fate is changed. Instead of being killed by the Soviets, he is taken as a hostage along other guards and later is forced to leave the Hangar 51 along the other guards, saving his life.
