Synopsis

Colonel Marshall, with the United States Army in Paris, is charged with the delivery of important orders pertaining to a major offensive, but instead he gets love notes from Olga, a French flirt whom his wife does not appreciate. His daughter, Eileen, loves Lieut. Jim Reed, whom the colonel dislikes. Meanwhile, Tommy and Gilbert, buck privates, go A. W. O. L., and to escape pursuit by military police, they steal the colonel's car, along with Annette, his younger daughter. To win them the colonel's forgiveness, Annette and Olga plan to make the boys heroes by intercepting papers intended for Lieutenant Reed, detailed to the front, and sending the boys on Reed's mission. They are captured, and the colonel threatens to have them shot; but they blackmail him to forgive them with the aid of one of Olga's perfumed love notes.
