It was there that Brigadier General J.R. Rees announced plans to introduce psychiatric practices within the ranks of the military.
The Army and the other fighting services form rather unique experimental groups since they are complete communities, he announced, and it is possible to arrange certain experiments in a way that would be very difficult in civilian life.
These heroic figures who fought for their country would provide an ideal breeding ground of guinea pigs for an industry struggling for worldwide public acceptance.
One disastrous symptom of this lies in the military's over-reliance on prescriptions for anti-psychotic drugs.
Several members of the armed forces attest to this disturbing trend in the film.
They witness far too many soldiers who are not given the proper medical evaluations they deserve because pharmaceutical sales remain the priority.
As a result, many soldiers are hurriedly diagnosed with post-traumatic stress syndrome, even when their symptoms might indicate a more severe brain injury, and they're given medications that only exacerbate their already tremulous condition.
These toxic drugs inflict severe behavioral changes and can potentially make them a danger to others and, more commonly, to themselves.
With great humanity and concern, this film exposes a growing epidemic which exists under the spotlight of public scrutiny among military units around the world.
