Hoot Gibson takes off his cowboy gear and dons a naval uniform in this comedy-drama. Sam Pertune (Gibson) is in love with Mae Day (Laura La Plante, who was Gibson's frequent co-star during this period). However, Mae's father Ezra Day (Howard Truesdell) isn't in love with Mae's romance with Pertune. When the young man comes to call, a fight breaks out and Pertune thinks he has killed Day with a poker. He flees and joins the Navy, but when he discovers that the old man wasn't seriously injured, he decides to go home -- only to find out that leaving the Navy isn't all that easy. Nevertheless, Pertune distinguishes himself when he saves Captain Bristol (DeWitt Jennings) from an insane man's attack. When the captain invites him to his home, Pertune discovers that he is Mae's uncle. Not only does he win Mae, he gets a recommendation to the Naval Academy.
