A career Marine, nearing retireement, reviews his accomplishments and mistakes and his fear of the future. As he looks at the past, his future becomes clearer and more promising and his fears start fading away

A  Marine Master Gunnery Sergeant looks back on his life and the various fears that have plagued him.  As an outstanding high school baseball palyer, he feared the successes of becoming a great Major League pitcher and used his girl friend's dilemma as an excuse to escape to the Marine Corps.  He was one of the Vietnam War's highest decorated heroes, but considered his successes on the battlefield as just part of the job. 

Two failed marriages were constand reminders of his continued fear of success.  He even fears his upcoming retirement from the Marine Coprs.  He has seen too many friends retire at the age of 40 and just melt away and he does not want that to happen to him.

As he relives each parcel of his life and his career, his future becomes clearer and more promising and his fears start fading away.
