The DoD has hired a retired SEAL to test and evaluate physical security arrangements; he abducts the wife of the commander of an Army post. Harm, a schoolmate from the Naval Academy, seeks to persuade him to ease up a bit. The admiral in charge of the program assigns one more operation to the consultant, who then, on his own, captures a nuclear attack submarine, mans her, gets her underway, and takes her to sea. Bud serves as the officially assigned lawyer observer for each of those two adventures. Eventually the bad guy unsuccessfully tries to kidnap the wife of the same admiral. Gunny encounters a bit of resistance and resentment, and Lt. Loren Singer arrives at the office. Written by DocRushing

This is the first appearance of Nanci Chambers, playing Lt. Loren Singer, who is the wife of David James Elliott in real life. See more »


The argument about the location of the classified material trash can is a moot point. Classified material is NEVER stored in an open trash can. It must places in a properly secured container (i.e. safe) and then properly destroyed. See more »

The hunt for the San Pedro - "Red October it ain't"; Loren Singer arrives
11 March 2021 | by hindsonevansmikeSee all my reviews

A so-so episode, revealing lapses and gaps in the US Navy's protection of its bases and submarines.

Things get a bit tense, with the skipper of the ship a recent appearance in the "Nelson" court martial a few weeks back.

Bud hurts his leg (*no*, it's not *that* "Bud-hurt-leg" episode!) and eventually everyone gets to go home safely with no real damage done.

The Gunny and Harriet eventually make up, after a side-story regarding where Tiner should stick his Confidential Scrap bin.

Loren Singer arrives (for around 3.5 seasons until the investigation into her death will launch "NCIS")
