"Tommy" Damon gives birth to a boy, Donny, at the Army base in Kansas where Sam's military career seems to have stalled. Meanwhile Emily Massengale seeks from other men the satisfaction she can't find with her husband. She becomes pregnant by a married taxi driver and, distraught, tries suicide by overdosing on pills at a cheap motel. Rushed to an emergency room, she and the unborn child are saved. Emily now wants to divorce Courtenay but he threatens to expose her adulterous past. Reluctantly she gives in and Courtenay says they will raise the child as their own. "Tommy" and Sam, now stationed in Texas, have child problems of their own. She insists that Donny be kept away from things military lest he too becomes a soldier. Written by
