When Tex Jones a navy pilot stationed on an aircraft carrier learns that he is a father, he shares the news with his best pals and fellow pilots Red Furness, Steve Bassett and Bill Lyons. Their ship reaches its home port of San Diego thirty days later but when Tex returns home, he discovers that his wife Mary died the previous night. Tex is overwhelmed with grief, and while he looks at his son whom he and Red call the Admiral, Red dissuades Mary's snobbish sister, Bernice Farrington, from taking the baby away.

After Bernice leaves Tex tells Red that he does not want the Farringtons to take his son, and asks him to look after the Admiral while he sees Mary one last time. On his way to the hospital, however the distraught Tex is run over by a car. Red who had sneaked the baby into his bachelor quarters in order to avoid Bernice, goes to see Tex. In front of two witnesses Tex appoints Red as his son's legal guardian, then dies. Red returns to his quarters and sadly relates the news to Steve and Bill, and tells them that his Aunt Minnie will arrive soon to take care of the Admiral. Meanwhile Bernice, her mother and their attorney, Mr. Strickland visit Red's commanding officer, Admiral Kingston, and persuade him to take them to Red's quarters.
