RAdm. Chegwidden goes to a local high school to speak on Career Day. When he arrives, he confronts a student for his rude behavior toward a girl. The conversation deteriorates, the boy spits at the admiral, and the admiral slaps the boy. A student video team record the incident. The SecNav demands a retirement, and the CNO holds a Flag Mast. Mac defends the admiral, Sturgis offers him help, and everyone else in the office also supports him. The boy's lies overtake him, he becomes discredited, and the world goes on. Meanwhile in a court-martial Harm defends a Navy SEAL officer who has disobeyed an order while going back to recover the body of a fallen member of his team (and leading to the death of another member).
