In Pursuit of Honor is a 1995 Western drama film directed by Ken Olin and starring Don Johnson, Craig Sheffer, and Gabrielle Anwar. The film is based on the true story of the United States Army's attempt to phase out horses in favor of vehicles during the early 20th century. The film is set in the year 1934, at a time when the U.S. government was making a concerted effort to phase out horses in favor of mechanized vehicles. The film's premise centers around a cavalry unit stationed in Montana, which is ordered to turn over their horses and transition to the use of new vehicles.

Don Johnson plays Captain John Boyd, the commander of the regiment, who is initially reluctant to turn over his horses.

As the regiment begins to transition to vehicles, Boyd and Farley become increasingly conflicted over the decision to abandon the horses. They eventually decide to steal the horses and take them on a cross-country journey to the Mexican border, where they plan to sell them.

However, their plan is complicated by the fact that they are being pursued by a group of military officials who want to capture them and bring them to justice. Along the way, they also encounter a group of outlaws who threaten to derail their plan.

Despite these setbacks, Boyd and Farley are determined to see their mission through, and they continue on their journey, facing numerous obstacles and challenges along the way.
