The original release sheet reads: In this issue, television audiences will see the Army's latest methods used in character guidance instruction. Using open ended films which have been staged and produced by the Army Pictorial Center, a problem is presented to the soldier on an ethical subject which plays, or might someday play, an important part in his life. The films are purposely left unresolved so that, after watching them, the soldiers may evaluate for themselves the behavior of the characters and provide their own solution to the problems presented. That such a vast military organization as the United States Army should have a program dealing with character guidance may seem a little puzzling. But the character of the American soldier is representative of this country--and the character of a country may well be its most precious possession. FOR MORE INFORMATION
