"Academy Men" -- SERIES LOGLINE "Academy Men" follows the exploits of West Point cadets, specifically the class of 1974, through their four years of college education and military training, and everything else that entails. As a land war in Asia rages all about them – at least on T.V. and in the newspapers -- • While their parents wail how the country’s taken a turn for the worst – • While their contemporaries extol them to “make love, not war” -- • While the sex is not only better than cheap, it’s “free”! -- The Class of 1974, United States Military Academy, slogs on with one mission in mind: graduate and get the hell out of there!
Henry Flipper, the fourth black man ever appointed to the Military Academy at West Point, soon discovers he is not welcome there -- because of his race. So enduring excessive prejudice and unjust hardships for four long years, he struggles to become what the other three men before him could not: the first black graduate of West Point.
