An Officer and a Gentleman

Zachary Mayo is preparing to report to Aviation Officer Candidate School (AOCS) following college graduation. After his mother's suicide while he was a child, he had moved to the Philippines to live with his father, Byron, a US Navy Boatswain's Mate First Class. His father, initially reluctant to take Zack because he spent most of his time at sea and did not think he would be a good father, relents after Zack begs him to stay, and Zack grows up as a Navy brat at U.S. Naval Base Subic Bay. Zack is now determined—despite his father's disapproval—to become a Navy pilot so Byron will have to salute him.
