Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
In this patriotic war drama, a soldier becomes quite upset when he is transferred from the highly coveted machine-gun unit to the canine corps. He begins to change his opinion when he learns that his army dog Mike was a gift from an 8-year-old whose father was killed in the war. Now the soldier becomes committed to training Mike into the best army dog there ever was. Later Mike is paired with Pearl and together the two dogs become renowned for their uncanny ability to ferret out Japanese machine-gun nests. Even though Pearl is killed during one such mission, brave Mike carries on.
