The West Point Story, a TV drama from 1956-1957 saved my life. Because of the show, I, as an eleven year old boy talked my parents into enrolling me in the local military academy as a day student. I only spent a year there but they taught me some very important lessons. First that the military culture expected unquestioning obedience to authority. The authority was composed by stupid and cruel people. I hated it. When the Vietnam draft was was in progress I knew enough about the military to compell me to evade military service by any means. I very possibly would have been killed or severely wounded there. Certainly mentally wounded.moreless
