Henry Fonda performs the true story of a man, Dave Snyder, whose legs were injured in a land mine explosion in Okinawa. To cope with his life after the war, he joins the Riot Squad, a social club run by the Disabled American Veterans' Foundation. General Wainwright visits the men and Dave Snyder dances an Irish jig.

General Wainwright and Henry Fonda appeal to listeners for contributions to the Foundation.
