The U. S. Navy produced this film which justly glorified the exploits of the great aircraft veteran of the Doolittle Raid, the Battle of Midway, the Battle of Guadalcanal, the Battle of the Solomon Islands and the Battle of Santa Cruz, a film shown only to shipyard and war plant workers as a confidential morale booster to show both how their labor was being employed in the war effort, and how the loss of the fruits of their labor to enemy action necessitated accelerated effort to make good the losses and build even more materiel to defeat the Axis.
