In 1953, at Fort Bliss, Texas, two former Korean War combat veterans work as drill sergeants and fall in-love with the same woman.
A captured V-1 missile is seen when the recruits are being marched by as the pulse jet engine is "test fired". Why a V-1 would be at Fort Bliss in 1953 is never explained.
Sgt. Thorne Ryan:
This is your rifle, and not your gun; it's made for shooting, and not for fun!
It would seem the actors drew the line at getting a true recruit haircut. Your first haircut and each one you get each week for the next 8 to 12 weeks of basic training, will be nearly bald cuts. Electric clippers are set to leave approx. ¼ inch of hair. The men leaving the barber still have lush hair styles. Something no recruit would ever have.
