Cartoon Summary:

A United States Navy training film encourages re-enlistment after the Second World War. The cartoon opens with a Navy soldier longing for civilian life. A dream sequence complete with scantily-clad dancing girls and a hookah pipe delightfully depicts what civilian life could be. Then, to the soldier's dismay, the next sequence shows what civilian life would be -- rote assembly line work, deductions for taxes and social security, a huckster insurance salesman, high costs of rent, food, haircuts, and clothing (all of which are provided free by the Navy). The soldier eagerly re-enlists.
