He was sent to a military academy that was about to close. 

Colonel Brennan and the dean, played by Natalie Brown, do their best to save the school where Brennan once attended.

The school has changed so much that Brennan barely recognizes it as his alma mater.  Stone Creek Academy is nothing like it used to be, and Colonel Brennan's job is to bring it back to standards so it will not close. Therefore, the retired colonel requires the young cadets to wear approved uniforms and follow certain rules that he thinks are important.

About Sheppard Denton

His appearance in For Love and Honor was Sheppard Denton's television debut as he played the part of Mason Keller. Mason and the colonel bond as they work together in an attempt to save the academy. There is a very moving scene at the end of the movie where Mason masters his gun salute during a performance. That performance is shown in the short video above. Sheppard acted so well that this will certainly not be his last role even though he might not be always be acting alongside his own father.
