Medal of Honor winner Audie Murphy's two young sons' prying questions about space-age missiles prompt Murphy to make a tour of modern Army installations and revisit some of the places he saw in Europe during World War II. First stop is Germany and Hitler's stadium in Nuremberg. Moving on to Wurzburg, Murphy stops at the Third Division area and inspects the platoon he commanded as a First Lieutenant 15 years before. In Germany, the most decorated soldier of World War II gets a look at the Corporal missile and the Redstone missile. A side trip to Norway gives him an orientation view of the Nike Ajax and Hercules ground-to-air missiles. Returning to the United States, Lt. Gen. Arthur G. Trudeau gives the movie star a grand tour of White Sands Missile Range to watch the LaCrosse, the Little John, and the Hawk in action. A highlight of the White Sands visit is the successful firing of the mighty Sergeant missile. At his residence again, Murphy explains to his children about how the free world is being protected by the Army's arsenal of missiles.

Historical achievements and progress of the White Sands Missile Range in developing missiles for national defense. Opening with a review of the historical highlights of the Tularosa Basin, brief sequences are shown of Spanish conquistadores, early-day prospectors, wagon trains, cowboys, Indians, and the Cavalry, culminating in the first "A" bomb explosion which took place on the present-day White Sands Missile Range. The body of the film goes on to scenes of an early-day V-2 missile test. There follow brief sequences of technological "firsts" achieved at White Sands (e.g., missile-borne camera shots of the earth, the Viking missile, high-speed sled tests, static motor tests, and many others. Back dropped by the Oregon Mountains of New Mexico, "Tularosa Frontier" becomes a picture posing the question: "What does the future hold?"
