Hugh O'Brian play a young lieutenant in charge of basic training for a platoon of new Army draftees (back in the days when men were drafted into the Army). One of the new men is played by Martin Milner. The catch is that they are from the same hometown, and O'Brian's father works for Milner's father back home. Milner starts to pressure O'Brian for special treatment in order to ensure that his father is not fired. John Doucette is also well cast as the tough and experienced platoon sergeant, who can't comprehend why his lieutenant is cutting so much slack to the spoiled rich kid. I happened to see the original broadcast of this, and caught a syndicated re-broadcast sometime in the late 60's. This story always stayed with me, so it must have been good.
