|The Chow Hound|
The short is narrated by a bull from the Panhandle Valley. He is on his honeymoon when the United States joins World War II. He is inspired by an Uncle Sam poster to join the war effort and is processed as canned food. The cans marked with his smiling visage are then transported by truck, ship, and camel overseas to reach the hungry troops. 
The cans reach Snafu in the Pacific War zone, for as the bull's ghost has determined Snafu must eat, in spite of bomb and shrapnel blast. Snafu in fact waits first in line for the food and demands that food must be piled high on his tray. He then stuffs himself and throws away the leftovers. The ghost attacks the clueless soldier, and laments volunteering as food only to be wasted.
