When the man from the draft board arrives to take country bumpkin Will Stockdale to Callville for induction into the army, Will's father chases him off. But even hastily erected barbed wire cannot prevent Uncle Sam from claiming this draftee, and soon Will is on a bus to Fort Thompson, Georgia. In the barracks, our hapless hero meets little Ben Whiteledge, a fellow trainee who thinks he deserves a medal simply because his grandfather fought under Stonewall Jackson.
