Storyline

During an exercise including an amphibious landing on a simulated enemy beach, friendly fire accidentally goes dangerously close to a boat hauling 15 Marines -- apparently due to a mistake by Petty Officer Mike Roberts, Bud's brother, a fire-control technician third-class. With the admiral's consent Bud flies to Mike's ship and starts an unofficial investigation; suddenly Bud shares a berthing facility with Mike. Next Mac flies to the ship, then Harm does likewise. Protestors in a rubber boat stage a collision with the ship; Harm chats with one of them, and he learns much. Later the admiral, the SecNav, and Webb fly out. Harm figures it out and describes it to all the brass. Soon the admiral receives an award at a surface-warfare officers' ball, and Mic unexpectedly shows up. Written by DocRushing
