> Description 
"Sitting with a man who can snap my neck like a chicken. . .it's different." The speaker is Polly Cooper, a pretty reporter for the Oceanside Chronicle and a widow with three daughters. She's interviewing Marine major J.D. "Mac" MacGillis. "God, is that still our public image?" says Mac. "Time bombs in uniform? Battlefield robots? Gung-ho wild men?" Polly: "Old stereotypes die hard. How would you characterize yourselves?" Mac shrugs: "Warrior Gods. . .?" Polly writes her article, which is, well, somewhat slanted. Okay, it's a hatchet job. Polly is a fire-eating liberal who doesn't agree with anything Mac says. They have nothing in common, except chemistry. Before you can say semper fi, Mac is down on one knee, asking Polly to marry him.

Being a man of dicipline, John had a hard time adjusting to being a father of three girls: Elizabeth, into rock music and boys; Robin, intellectual and sensitive; and Casey, just too cute for words. At the base, his staff included eager-to-please Lt. Holowachuk, bright Sgt. James, and his perpetually perky secretary Marilee Gunderson, daughter of the base commander.

At the start of the second season, John and his family relocated to Camp Hollister, in Farlow, Virginia, near Washington, D.C., where he was now staff secretary to the base's gruff, eccentric commanding officer, General Marcus Craig. Lt. Holowachuk had also been transferred, becoming his aide-de-camp, and "Gunny" Bricker was his new secretary. Polly's new job was feature editor of The Bulldog, Camp Hollister's newspaper.
