Synopsis

Owing to an error in the Army's data-processing classification system, Cpl. Gale Willard, a young missile technician, is assigned to a Pacific island military base staffed by 125 WAC's. Until Washington issues new orders, Gale is given temporary duties by Judy Fraser, an attractive top sergeant. The WAC's are trying to prove that they are as effective as men in missile tactics, and they are in heated competition with an all-male base on another island some miles away. After causing a romantic upheaval in the women's camp, Gale is sent to the rival base to learn the "enemy's" secret tactics. He accomplishes his mission and helps the women win the missile-firing exercise. When his replacement arrives, the grateful WAC's give him a farewell party, and Sergeant Fraser promises to meet him again.
