(NOTE TO EDITORS: The following episode of THE UNIT has been substituted for the one previously scheduled for Oct. 24.) -- WHEN NEGOTIATIONS TO PURCHASE SURFACE-TO-AIR MISSILES FROM A DRUG LORD IN BRAZIL BREAK DOWN, THE UNIT MUST FIND ANOTHER WAY TO RETRIEVE AND DESTROY THE LETHAL WEAPONS, ON A REBROADCAST OF "THE UNIT," TUESDAY, OCT. 24

            "Eating The Young" -- When negotiations to purchase surface-to-air missiles (SAMs) from a drug lord in Brazil break down, the Unit must find a new way to retrieve and destroy these lethal weapons, on a rebroadcast of THE UNIT, Tuesday, Oct. 24 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.  The episode was directed by Miller Tobin and written by Sterling Anderson.  (Originally broadcast 5/2/06)

            After an effort to buy the surface-to-air missiles from a drug lord falls through and the missiles disappear, Jonas and his team must track down the weapons before they are taken out of the country.  Jonas bonds with a local boy who directs the team to where the SAMs have been taken to be shipped and now it is in the Unit's hands to destroy them.  Meanwhile on the home front, Kim stirs up more trouble when she insists that the "Family Readiness Group" deals with more serious issues, and Williams struggles with how and when to tell the woman he wants to marry that he is a Unit member and not a clerk on base.
