A Marine helo crashes in Iraq due to enemy fire; a colonel pulls a general out of the bird. A frigate, USS Hennessey, has become involved in an altercation with a Canadian fishing vessel (while intervening in a dispute between that boat and a US fishing boat); an ensign shot and injured a fisherman, who is a member of the First Nation and the son of the captain. The PotUS wishes for a particular Marine to be considered to serve as the next JAG of the Navy; that candidate is the colonel who pulled the general out of the helo; he undergoes extensive scrutiny. Harm figures out the truth about the incident with the fishermen. Mattie and Jennifer talk about girl stuff and family stuff. Written by

Twice Harm and Mac address the CO of the frigate as "commander", whereas, according to a long and unquestioned tradition in the US Navy, the CO of a Naval vessel is properly addressed as "captain" regardless of the rank of that person. See more

I've heard that you're a man of few words. It's kind of unusual for a lawyer, isn't it?

I try to choose those few words carefully, sir.
