After the end of World War II, Jean Madison (Wanda Hendrix), a former WAVE ensign, meets the former aircrew of an Army Air Corps A-20 Havoc light bomber named "Sinful Sinthia" when they go to collect their unemployment benefits. They are all members of the "52-20 Club," a government program which pays unemployed American veterans $20 a week for 52 weeks. Jimmy and his men "prove" to the government clerk that they are looking for work by placing an ad in the newspaper - "At liberty: combat crew. Four specialists eager and willing to drop bombs" - and receive their checks.
