Bud receives a promotion from lieutenant (junior grade) to full lieutenant; then Bud Sr. enters in uniform, announces that the Navy has recalled him to active duty to try him at a court-martial (for larceny and wrongful disposition of government property), and he asks Bud to defend him. Harm prosecutes, Bud defends, and Bud Sr. assaults and batters a government witness. Bud proves to be a vigorous and aggressive adversary at trial. Bud and Harriet throw a wetdown party at Murphy's Tavern. Continuing to look after Dar-lin, LCdr. Jordi Parker takes her to the JAG office, and Dar-lin identifies the bad guy from some mug shots; the NCIS people find his fingerprints at Grandma's house.
Did You Know?
There are at least 2 errors with MCPO Robert's ribbons. 1) He has a Vietnam Campaign Medal but no Vietnam Service Medal. It took only one day in the combat zone to earn the VSM. But, it took 6 months to earn the VCM. 2) His rate insignia and hashmarks are gold. This requires at least the last 12 years of service to all be good conduct. He has no Good Conduct Medal. See more
Lt. Bud Roberts, Jr.
While you are in this building in that uniform, you will address me as "Lieutenant" or "Sir", NOT "son", "Buddy" or "Bud". Is that clear, MASTER CHIEF?
Big Bud Roberts
[through restrained anger
Very clear... sir!
