Storyline

A sadistic Army lieutenant pushes his men too hard. After a late-night poker game inside a back room of the officers' club, someone stabs him in the back with a bayonet, and he dies. The Army charges one of the soldiers in his company. The father of the accused is an old friend of Ben, so he hires Ben to defend his son. Ben investigates at the post, Tyler goes undercover, and Charlene lends a hand at a nearby night spot. Curious circumstances come to light. Before a preliminary hearing reconvenes, the defendant disappears. Written by DocRushing

Goofs

During this story, Ben can't figure out why he's getting saluted by a number of the soldiers on the post. In reality, the soldiers would *not* salute someone in civilian clothing, unless he were someone they recognized as an officer (and, most of the time, not even then). The person that Ben asks about this says that perhaps they assumed he (Matlock) was a government official, but again they would only do that for someone like the President, the Sec. of Defense or the Army.
