Storyline

A Marine recon team extracts other Marines imprisoned in Haiti due to rebel action; women and children die during gunfight. An admiral had ordered the officer in tactical command to wait before starting the mission. Harm and Mac seek to determine who ordered the start of the mission. The responsible officer, a lieutenant colonel, requests a court-martial rather than an admiral's mast; he admits having disobeyed the order to wait by placing the welfare of his men in Haiti over his career. Harm and Mac prosecute, and the admiral and Bud defend. Vigorous courtroom action ensues. Harm calls a surprise witness with surprising testimony. Justice prevails. Written by DocRushing

Interesting Character - Capt. Rita Chaidez
31 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As best I can remember, Capt. Rita Chaidez was the only JA who ever stood up to Harm or Mac or Chegwidden.

Alas, this was the only episode that Capt. Rita Chaidez appeared in.

I would liked to have seen more of her - I liked the fireworks and crisp dialog.

Also, it is interesting to see a woman put in the part of reprimanding such high powered lawyers!

You just don't see good dialog on many shows or movies today - too much interest in special effects!

Of course, I am slightly biased. I went to high school with the actress who played the part, Kathleen Lloyd, nee Kathy Gackle!
