The film begins with the following written foreword: "We desire to express grateful appreciation to the Department of Defense and the United States Marine Corps, for the cooperation which was extended in the production of this picture. We especially salute the men and officers of Camp Pendleton, California, where many of the sequences were filmed." At the end of the film, the following narration is heard: "Wherever the United States Marines are fighting our nation's battles, whether by land, sea or air, the Marine combat cameraman will be bound. He is a fighting man, using a camera as well as a gun in one of the finest combat forces in the world. To him, we respectfully dedicate this picture." According to an October 1952 Hollywood Citizen-News item, some of the battle footage in the film was taken from Korean War documentary films.
