During the Vietnam War era, eighteen-year-old John Paul Jacobs, better known as Jake, experiences his first years as a new cadet in the U.S. military service academy at West Point. As Jake endures rigorous training, he learns that serving to protect the country could come at a cost. Will his high school romance endure? Will he survive the politics against the armed forces during a time of "peace and love," sit-ins, and protests? Does Jake have what it takes to gain the Green Beret of the newly formed special forces--the Army Rangers--or does the U.S. government have something else in store for him? More importantly, how will Jake be prepared when he crosses paths with an extreme radical mastermind and his terrorist organization bent on destroying the United States and everything Jake holds dear?
