Synopsis
When her husband dies on their wedding night, Jewish American princess Judy Benjamin is so traumatized that she is vulnerable to a pitch by a tricky recruiter and finds herself in the Women's Army Corps. Judy expects the spa-like atmoshere that she was promised, but is quickly disabused of this notion by the tough Captain Lewis. Now just one of the grunts, the pampered Judy has to work for her privileges for the first time, and after a grueling period of adjustment, grows into a good soldier, and a woman with solid self-esteem.
