When sailors arrive in Long Beach, Lt. Vic Donald (Pat Boone) and local resident Sally Hobson (Barbara Eden) fall in love. Soon, it is time for the ship to sail for the Aleutians, and Vic must leave Sally behind. One sailor, Shrieking Eagle Garfield (Buddy Hackett), brings a stowaway turkey on board and has more than a few problems hiding it from the captain, LCdr. Brian O'Gara (Dennis O'Keefe).
