To most men in the military, every day is a struggle to cope with the hard life of serving one's country. To Sergeant Ernie Bilko and his men, the struggle is how they are going to keep the company commanding officer distracted long enough to finish their poker game. These are not the kind of troops you see in the news reels or in the John Wayne war movies. These are more of the kind of troops you see lounging around country clubs they don't belong to expecting to get drinks that cannot pay for from servers who have no idea who they are. Sergeant Bilko and his group have it pretty good in the military, until everything starts to change. The sarge decides to get serious about his long-time girlfriend right about the same time that the military begins to crack down on Bilko's operations. Bilko and his men are able to keep things going for a while, but the vacation comes to an abrupt end when Sergeant Bilko's girlfriend and the military investigators both discover that he is nothing but a fraud. What will Sergeant Bilko do to regain his honor and help redeem his troops?
