John Allen needs to receive an Army Good Conduct medal to satisfy himself and a judge. After enlisting he finds that the Army is not what he expected and ends up in the stockade where he meets a guard. The guard encourages John to act differently and John becomes a model soldier.
As a Military Policeman in Vietnam, John is awarded a commendation medal and because of heroic actions in Detroit where he is stationed he is recommended to receive the Soldiers medal. Still things happen which disqualifies him to receive the medal he wants and needs.
At his next assignment he misreads a situation and is confronted by two drunk soldiers and John is forced to defend himself. The two drunks are so seriously injured that John is charged and convicted of excessive use of force. He is sent to a Military Disciplinary Barracks where due to events, John's life is forever changed.
