Olive tells the boys she loves a man in a uniform, so they try to sign up at the recruiting station, but they can only take one. There follows a duel of clips from previous shorts as they attempt to prove who is the winner. Written by

"I'm crazy about a man in uniform," coos Olive Oyl, who is walking down the street arm-in- arm with both Popeye and Bluto. Since both are nuts over the skinny woman, they both rush in to the Army Recruting Station down the street. "I only have room for one," says the recruiter. (Since when?)
Bluto and Popeye show pictures (which are translated into short movies for us) showing the recruiter how brave and tough they have been in the past. They show themselves as gunslingers, swordsmen, etc.
Who wins the contest and who gets Olive? Well, you can probably guess. Overall, this was okay but nothing noteworthy.
