Storyline

Private Donald Duck is on a long, long training march, growing steadily more exhausted. Finally, they reach their camp location, and despite Donald's desire for dinner, he follows orders to pitch his tent first. He finally gives up on the tent as night falls. But as he tries to get to sleep, the loud shoring of the other soldiers forces him to bury his head. Finally, he gets to sleep, just as reveille sounds and the march continues.

Nice to see Donald serve his country!
23 May 2016 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

This is a funny little cartoon where Donald Duck is serving in the military as a private, out on a very long training march. It's funny seeing him grow exhausted as he treads through the desert and snow until he and his fellow solders finally reach their camp. When Donald must follow orders to pitch his tent first before dinner, the tent won't cooperate and results in classic funny Donald frustration. Even during bed time, Donald has trouble with the uncooperative tent and the loud snores of his fellow soldiers. Funny stuff here and it's just classic and hilarious how Donald deals with his mishaps. At the end, Donald shows some great endurance as he almost gets no sleep and is told to march on - strong-willed like a real soldier!
