The contestants workout until they get dropout with a personal trainer for the mini challenge ("drag booty camp"). For the main challenge, the final five queens must put fellow gay men who served their country before the repeal of "don't ask, don't tell" in drag. Each queen and their vet must have a "strong family resemblance" and be a "true expression" of the contestant's drag. On top of walking the runway together, the pairs must each perform a "patriotic color guard presentation."

Mackenzie Claude appears in this episode as the former military man Alaska Thunderf**k makes over into first-time drag for the maxi challenge. Alaska decided to name Mackenzie's drag persona 'Nebraska'. Mackenzie would later go on to date Rupaul's Drag Race season 8 contestant (and professional Las Vegas Britney Spears impersonator) Derrick Berry. Mackenzie now regularly dons drag as Nebraska Thunderfu**k, which is the character she created while working with Alaska during the makeover challenge in this episode. According to interviews, Alaska gave Nebraska permission to use her drag surname 'Thunderf**ck' professionally for gigs, but Nebraska has been largely mentored in the drag world by her real life boyfriend, Derrick Berry.
