A documentary film portraying the process of professional training in the U.S. Army consists of four separate reports:
1. Professional army. Draft, services, professional training, and rest-time. U.S. Army service from dusk till dawn: catering, uniform, religious service.
2. Training of tankers. Tank training area. Training session.
3. Training of pilots and ground personnel of the U.S. Air Force.
4. Training of personnel in the U.S. Navy at the U.S. Navys base in Norfolk.
5. Russian studies at the West Point Academy.
The reports include brief interviews with recent recruits, sergeants and senior officers. Former Soviet Union citizens tell about the service in the U.S. Army. The general idea of the program is that U.S. military personnel are highly professional and well trained, and any nation getting into a military conflict with the United States will feel the superiority of the latter in every aspect. Interviewees: Carl Armstrong, mayor of Fort Knox; Daniyar Uteulin, cadet, former citizen of Kazakhstan; Alexander Vershinin, soldier, former citizen of Ukraine.
