Mac has prosecuted an angry woman enlisted Marine for drug use; after sentencing (including one year at hard labor) the defendant slugs Mac; afterward she is found guilty of the battery and sentenced to three more years at hard labor. The prisoner is to be transferred to Miramar, California. During an unlikely sequence of events Mac figures out the false positive result on the drug test for which the defendant was prosecuted. Both Mac and the admiral himself start helping. Meanwhile Harm and Bud represent a senior chief petty officer who is HIV-positive, and who receives harsh treatment from his CO. The senior chief goes through some hard times, then he winds up in a place where he can serve well. Written by DocRushing
