Six men have died in a rough sea while trying to rescue a party in a rubber boat; Sturgis investigates. The admiral appears to stay in a happy mood. When he confirms his reservation for his wedding reception at the O Club in Annapolis, he converts it into his retirement party, which turns into a dining out. Harm learns that Mattie's father was not drunk at the time of the wreck; Mattie reconciles with her father. Webb appears to keep his promise to stay in touch with Mac each day while in Germany, but then the surprises stop, and Mac receives word that he has died (in the boat). Due to persistent back pain Mac has a laparoscopy; the news is not good. During the dancing after the dining out, Harm and Mac step outside and have a serious conversation. In the admiral's last official act as the JAG of the Navy, he presents a pair of shoulder boards to Bud. Written by
