The Vietnam War is finally over but for Lt. Jake Grafton, just back from two harrowing combat cruises, his own country seems almost as hostile. When his fists get him in trouble, he lands an excruciating eight-month cruise on the aircraft carrier COLUMBIA teaching jarheads -- Marines -- the nuances of carrier aviation. Taking off and landing from a slippery flight deck, on a choppy sea, in a pitch-black night, there is no room for error - or animosity.
