A civilian has sued the US because the Navy had held him in a brig for unauthorized absence -- because someone had stolen his identity, had enlisted by using it, and later went AWoL. Mic, having opened his own law firm in Washington, represents the man and asks for $2.5M. Harm and Bud settle with Mic. The admiral goes on a fishing trip in New Mexico, and Gunny, at his request, goes on a trip, also to New Mexico, to pick up a Marine belatedly accused of desertion (after his action at the Chosin Reservoir in Korea in 1950) and to escort him to Washington. Gunny and his prisoner take a contrived detour, wreck their car, and come under fire, and the admiral joins the firefight. After a resolution of the charge of desertion, the Marine receives the Navy Cross in an official ceremony. Meanwhile Harm turns over in the admiral's chair, hits his head, and experiences pleasant delusions about Mac. Written by DocRushing
