Cadet Brian Moreland meets privately with Military Academy Bunker Hill commander General Harlan Bache, who promotes him to Cadet Major, the highest cadet rank. The next day Bache announces that the school’s board of trustees will sell the school to real estate developers but that they will remain open for one more year to allow the seniors to graduate and the remaining cadets to find other schools. This gives many cadets hope that the school can be saved.

A dance is held at the academy after commencement. Local teenagers outside the gates harass some cadets and a brawl breaks out. When Bache attempts to end the fight, his service pistol is seized by one of the local boys and the weapon discharges, killing one of the local boys. Although the magazine was removed, a round was still in the chamber. Bache is held responsible and after he is arrested has a heart attack which leaves him in critical condition at the hospital. The board decides to close the school immediately.
