During a training exercise five newbies and a seasoned instructor make a jump from a C-130 Hercules at an altitude of 4,000 feet; the jumpmaster (the instructor) signals the jump about 800 yards too soon; due to the mistake, two trainees land in a lake, and one of them lands also in a hospital and soon dies. The jumpmaster faces a court-martial; Mac prosecutes, and Bud and Loren defend. It becomes necessary for Harm to replace Mac as the prosecutor; his analysis of the case goes beyond the question of whether a light turned green. The admiral has both a new girlfriend and a new outlook on the world; Gunny goes barhopping, and Mac makes a journey to Australia. Written by
