AWOL soldier is innocent
7 November 2013 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Don Galloway is one lucky police sergeant in this Ironside episode. He gets only wounded when a good samaritan pulls him out of the line of fire and then applies a tourniquet to save his life. The whole police department would like to thank him.

The problem is that Michael Callan is a fugitive, both from the army from which he is AWOL and from a murder charge as he is accused in the death of a WAC sergeant.

No one who saves the life of one of Ironside's squad is not going to get the benefit of the doubt and help from Raymond Burr, especially if as Callan claims, he's innocent.

It all goes back to Vietnam where some soldiers had a nice sideline in heroin smuggling. The Ironside team joins with the Provost Marshal Warren Stevens and Investigator Don Barry to find the real guilty party.

The solution to me is rather obvious, but still it's not a bad story.
