During war games at Quantico a Marine corporal, driving a tank, becomes disoriented and accidentally demolishes his unit commander's tent; he then faces a court-martial for dereliction of duty. His personal life, which includes a drug-user estranged wife with sole custody of a one-year-old son, has diluted his attention and marred his performance. Harm, Mac, Bud, and Dalton all work to defend the corporal and to represent him in the custody proceeding. Harm gets a change of venue to Parris Island; however, en route there, the defendant escapes, returns to Quantico, seizes a tank, takes his son for a ride, and precipitates a confrontation. Harm brings in Grandma Bea to join the defense team, and she helps immeasurably. The story ends after the custody hearing but before the court-martial. Written by DocRushing
