Opening scene shows German shephard puppies and their mother in World War 2. Several dogs and their handlers are seen. A dog being aggressively trained by a heavily padded trainer inciting the dog to attack him. Scene shifts to a sign reading "40th QM War Dogs" (40th Quartermaster War Dog Battalion).It is on a rustic compound fence in a jungle area of the Pacific. Dogs here are not aggressive, but are trained to be alert reliable companions to their respective handlers. Next, several soldiers and their companion dogs are seen walking along a jungle trail. Scene shifts abruptly to a completely different aspect of Quartermaster activity: Graves registration. Army pallbearers carry a fallen soldier on a stretcher, covered with an American flag, into an established military cemetery in the Pacific. Soldiers commence burial procedures. Views of the cemetery from a structure therein, showing numerous white crosses, and an extremely tall flag pole displaying the American flag. Scene shifts, to Quartermaster troops assembled in a chow line, as a bugler blows. Two GIs eating by a large tree.
