When Von Trapp and Maria return from the honeymoon, it is late afternoon. The daughter gives him a telegram, and he reads that he is to report to the Naval base at Bremerhaven the next day.He is in Salzburg, Austria and Bremerhaven, Germany is 954km (592.8 Miles) away. There is no way he could have driven from Salzburg to Bremerhaven, and been able to report for duty the next morning. If he took the commission, he would have been AWOL.
