Wounded in a Pacific battle, these American servicemen are placed aboard a giant transport plane for the speedy flight to a base hospital. There their wounds will be given expert attention, necessary operations will be performed, and, where needed, physical or occupational therapy applied to fit them for a return to action or civilian life.
