PFC. Purcel is getting married, & has named none other than our beloved PFC. Gomer Pyle as the best man for the wedding, so naturally disaster will ensue. His Grandmother has sent him her wedding ring, & he gives it to Gomer to take care of until the wedding. While practicing on the mortar rounds, Purcel thinks that he has lost the wedding ring. While they are assigned to Staff Sergeant Charley Hacker in the mess hall, they then lose the ring while making bread for the base, Camp Henderson. So they enlist Gunnery Sergeant Vince Carter, who they wake up late at night, much to his chagrin. They then go get Lieutenant Peterson, and head to the mess hall and use a metal detector to scan over 500 loaves of bread. After looking through all the loaves of bread, they find the ring in Gomer's back pocket of all places.
