In a scene from National Geographic’s documentary series “Chain of Command,” Sgt. La David Johnson, one of four soldiers killed in the October ambush in Tongo Tongo, Niger, is shown speaking with a fellow soldier while moonlighting as a barber on base.

“For team mechanic La David Johnson, staying busy often means wearing multiple hats,” actor Chris Evans, who narrates the documentary, says as Johnson is shown buzzing the hair of another soldier.

“When you’re not cutting hair, what are your other camp duties around here?” Johnson is asked in the episode that first aired Monday night. It will air again at midnight Eastern time Wednesday.

“Finding stuff to do, like making sure my truck is good, making sure my generator is good. Like regular maintenance on the daily,” Johnson responds.
