Compilation of home movies taken by Ed Feil during his military service. Begins when he enters the Army in June 1943. Covers his basic training at Fort Riley, experience in the Army Specialized Training Program at the University of Nebraska, and the 66th Infantry Division in action firing mortars. Features many shots of fellow soldiers interacting with the camera and flirting with girls. In Nebraska, the whole family meets (possibly with some extended family - Nellie Feil is originally from Omaha).
