She becomes obsessed with getting revenge for the sake of her dead brother. Written by Anonymous

Young girl plays footsie with the wrong dude
19 June 2002 | by (Broken Bow, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

When the promiscuous young daughter of a Army General gets the hots for a Major under her father's command she gets more than a rowdy roll in the old sackeroo. In fact things go about as wrong as they can and the Major must come up with a devious plan to shift the tragic results of his actions off onto someone else....and it worked beautifully. For years he manages to climb in rank garnering the respect of all in the military community until his past catches up with him in the form of a newlywed woman. Fair drama; nothing to write home about.
