A hardened Korean and Vietnam War veteran, Sergeant First Class Clell Hazard would rather be an instructor at the U.S. Army Infantry School at Fort Benning to train soldiers for Vietnam but instead is assigned to the 1st Battalion 3d Infantry Regiment at Fort Myer, Virginia. The Old Guard is U.S. Army’s Honor Guard. It provides the ceremonial honor guard for the funerals of fallen soldiers and guards the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery. Hazard calls them the “toy soldiers” and hates his job until Jackie Willow, the son of an old friend and fellow soldier, is assigned to his platoon and with whom he sees an opportunity to make sure at least one man comes home from Vietnam alive. Hazard tries to warn Willow about Vietnam but the young man sees it as his duty as a soldier to fight for his country, no matter what kind of war. Hazard hates how the war in Vietnam is being fought and feels that good soldiers are being wounded and killed in the “wrong” war in which the U.S. is not fighting to win.

Among the others in Hazard’s life are his longtime friend and superior, Sergeant Major “Goody” Nelson, and his girlfriend Samantha Davis, a writer for The Washington Post who is against the Vietnam War for different reasons. Willow marries a colonel’s daughter named Rachel Feld, who at first refuses to marry Jackie as long as he is a soldier. Rachel also hates the war in Vietnam and is afraid for her husband.
