A Marine corporal became convicted and sentenced to death 13 years ago for the premeditated murders of three fellow Marines; his original lawyer was Cdr. A.J. Chegwidden. The prisoner's last petition for review has finally reached the Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces; Mic represents the government, and Mac represents the condemned. The appellate court orders a new sentence hearing, and Mic receives orders to return to the Royal Australian Navy, so Harm replaces him for the new hearing. Harm also takes part in the recruiting commercials; he takes Renee to dinner, and Mic takes Mac. Both Harm and Mac make impassioned arguments, and Mac consents to a promise to the former corporal. Then the JAG gang gathers at McMurphy's Tavern to bid farewell to Mic. Written by DocRushing
