Will Stockdale is a country bumpkin drafted into the Air Force and too dumb to realize he's driving everyone around him crazy -- no one more than Sgt. King. At first King thinks he's found the perfect boob to do all the dirty work around the barracks. After all, Will actually enjoys cleaning the latrines. But the sergeant is in a heap of trouble when Will innocently tells the captain that King plans to keep him from getting classified. Now King will do anything to get rid of his perfect boob. But getting rid of him will prove more difficult than keeping him around.
