After getting Bart out of a commitment he made to join the Army at 18, Homer falls prey to a couple of Army recruiters and ends up in basic training. Treating it like a summer camp, Homer infuriates his sergeant by not cracking under pressure from the hazing and humiliation. Marge and Grandpa end-up trapped in the Army as well due to some questionable tactics by the recruiters when they appeal to get Homer out of basic training. The group is put in a mock military operation as terrorists so the Army can show the power and excellence of the new computer system; however, Homer and the others continue to avoid capture and eventually leave the operation to get food in Springfield where they are mistaken for real terrorists. After leading the military on a humiliating chase through town, Homer is able to take down the US Army by threatening them with the power plant.
