Harm, Mac, and Sturgis, aboard USS Seahawk, receive the news about Bud. Sturgis returns to Washington. RAdm. Chegwidden directs Harm and Bud to decide which of them will stay temporarily in Bud's billet aboard USS Seahawk, and which will return also to Washington; however, they both go to USS Guadalcanal, igniting the ire of the JAG.
