In Georgetown a paraplegic sidewalk accordionist, who served as a Marine and a PoW in Vietnam, kills a Vietnamese man, then he goes to the JAG headquarters and confesses. Harm hopes to gain some information from the veteran about his father, and he tries to do so. The vet first spins a fanciful yarn for Harm, then he admits to the falsehood, and eventually he gives a remarkable account of the savage treatment of him and his fellow prisoners in a camp in North Vietnam. The victim of the musician is the camp commandant, who sought and got refuge in the US, and who had lived in the US during the past 16 years. The vet recognized the Vietnamese and his speech in the crowd on the sidewalk. Harm volunteers to represent the vet in the civilian court. Written by DocRushing
