Storyline

At West Point we see the United States Army officer in the making and a knowledge of the daily routine soon removes the idea that the student officer's life is one of ease and luxury. During the summer months the strain is particularly severe. The day usually starts with a good infantry drill, followed by the manual of arms. The corps is then divided into squads for drill in the various other branches of the service. The light artillery is perhaps the most spectacular with its galloping horses and rumbling cannon. Then follow cavalry drills, pistol and sabre practice, then the handling of the heavy coast artillery guns from range finding to firing. Rifle practice, engineering, pontoon work and bridge building contribute to keep everybody busy. But what impresses the visitor most, is the corps on parade. Every man immaculate and all moving in unison past the reviewing officer. This was reviewed by Admiral Togo, which intensifies the interest of the film.
