Trivia

Although listed as being Season 1 Episode 5, this is clearly the chronological original episode of the series. Lt. Rice reports to Camp Pendelton for the first time, complete with a voiceover from him at the beginning explaining how he came there from training. Rice also mentions he is from Clary, Indiana. In the listed episode 1, The Lieutenant: A Million Miles from Clary (1963), Rice has already been posted to Camp Pendleton when a recruit from his home town of Clary is posted to his platoon.

Quotes

Lt. William 'Bill' Rice: I must hold some sort of record. Less than 36 hours from reporting in I get a guy set up for a general court martial, get my commanders on my back, louse up my first assignment, my platoon hates me and probably more.
