Various shots of survivors of the Lexington. Nice shots of the seven Patten brothers arrive home in Portland and being greeted at the railway station by their father, General Patton. They are all wearing sailor suits. The group stand on a platform and a large crowd stares at them (seems to be a war bond drive). M/S of the brothers standing in line on a naval ship gun and saluting.
