A Navy physician in Iraq has administered to a local child a drug which was in short supply in a field hospital; she now faces a pretrial hearing for having disobeyed an order and having endangered US military members; Harm prosecutes, and Mac and Bud defend; Bud presents evidence that the shortage had resulted from a mistake by the senior surgeon. The general's brother, William, served as a SEAL in SE Asia; a helo pilot died, but he saved William and his team. Unidentified remains have recently become discovered near the site in question; William strongly suspects that the body is that of the pilot; Vic and Catherine set out to find a relative and to get a sample of DNA; after a zigzag journey they find his brother in Memphis.

A good road movie for Graves and Vukovic
12 July 2019 | by hindsonevansmikeSee all my reviews

Echoes from the past reach out from Vietnam-era incidents.

The Blues soundtrack makes this an enjoyable JAG episode as the series winds down towards its demise at the end of season ten (there were just two episodes, centred on DC, to broadcast after this "road movie".

Useful investigations and some interesting back stories (Graves guesses - correctly - what lies at the heart of Vukovic's commitment issues and his approach to women). Her character could have been developed further.

Eventually, an unknown soldier is given an identity, meaning that one more MIA comes home. And yet, his brother's attitude ("he may just walk through the door some day") gives this antepenultimate episode of JAG a link back to the early "harm Father PoW" ark of the early series. A nice way to start closing down the ten-year run of "JAG".
