In addition to running a paramilitary mercenary school, Col. Frank Brailie (Robert Foxworth) is also embezzling money from the school's funds and having an affair with the wife of the school's owner, Gen. Padget. When Padget gets suspicious of Brailie's "Special Projects Fund," he tries to blackmail the colonel into cutting him in on the profits.
