Synopsis:
Lone Warrior enlists in the U.S. Army, is stationed right by the boy's camp where his kid brother goes, and the two join forces to stop saboteurs at the Army base working for the Dictator's Shadow.

Indexer Notes

Wonder Ship (able to transform between a car, a plane, a tank, and a submarine) debuts. Camp Trenton debuts. There are noticable themes here - the patriotism, the Army private who is secretly a superhero, the kid sidekick, the chemistry-related origin, the murder attempts on Army generals - that parallel Captain America.
Binder credited as writer of this strip by Bails's Who's Who.
