Zachary “Zack” Mayo is preparing to report to Aviation Officer Candidate School (AOCS) following college graduation. After his mother’s suicide while he was a child, he moved to the Philippines to live with his father, Byron, a US Navy Boatswain’s Mate First Class, a drunk, and a womanizer. Zack grows up as a Navy brat at U.S. Naval Base Subic Bay and is now determined—despite his father’s disapproval—to become a Navy pilot. Upon arrival at AOCS, Zack and his classmates are warned by their drill instructor, Marine Gunnery Sergeant Emil Foley, about “Puget Sound Debs”, local girls who dream of marrying a Naval Aviator and who will feign pregnancy or stop using birth control to trap a man. Zack and fellow candidate Sid Worley meet two local factory workers, Paula Pokrifki and Lynette Pomeroy, at a Navy Ball. Zack begins a relationship with Paula, while Sid dates Lynette.

Foley runs the program mercilessly, and Recruit Topper Daniels drops out after nearly drowning during a ditching-escape exercise. Foley believes Zack lacks motivation and is not a team player, and when he discovers Zack has been selling pre-shined shoes and belt buckles, he punishes Zack with an entire weekend of hazing to make him quit the program. Zack refuses, and Foley tells him he will expel him. Zack breaks down, telling Foley “I’ve got nowhere else to go. I’ve got nobody.” Satisfied that Zack has come to a crucial self-realization, Foley relents. The next weekend, Zack learns that Paula’s real father, an officer candidate like him, got Paula’s mother pregnant and refused to marry her. During his last obstacle-course run, Zack has a chance to break the course record, but instead stops to encourage his teammate, Casey Seeger, to succeed. Zack attends a dinner with Sid and his parents and learns that Sid has a long-time girlfriend who was his late brother’s girlfriend, and whom he is planning to marry once he receives his commission. Meanwhile, Lynette has been dropping hints to Sid that she may be pregnant with his child.
