In this 1950s home movie, the Bench family travels to Annapolis, Maryland, to visit a friend serving in the US Navy. While there, they observe military parades and possibly a homecoming ceremony at the US Naval Academy. Later, the Benches travel to Arlington, Virginia, where they visit Arlington National Cemetery and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
