A single woman Marine helo pilot, an officer, faces suspicion of adultery with her flight-line chief, a married enlisted man. Mac and Bud go to Camp Pendleton to investigate; before they arrive, her CO signs charges against her, alleging that she has violated three articles of the UCMJ. The CO grounds her and sets the matter for a court-martial; Harm joins them to defend her. The Honorable Bobbi Latham, an outspoken activist pro-woman member of the US House of Representatives, also arrives, to make sure that the defendant gets fair treatment. New evidence becomes available during the trial, and that changes everything. The pilot still passes her qualification flights. Written by
