The CAG (Boone) called her the “best RIO on the ship.” She was able to escape from the crash of an incompetent pilot and later supported Harm in several missions and saved his life by “jumping his bones” when he was nearly frozen and unconscious.

Anne-Marie Johnson as Congresswoman Bobbi Leatham

Spends a lot of her time on the “Bad Guy” list but has occasionally relented and assisted Harm enough to be called a “friend” of sorts. She wanted to date Harm for awhile then she and Sturgis Turner were “An Item” for awhile but life differences made them incompatible.

Claudette Nevins as Mrs. Porter Webb

Seaman Apprentice who attempted to “free” the navy dolphins having been rescued himself from a shark by dolphins when surfing. Mac defended & Turner prosecuted in a unusual show of compassion by recommending leniency.

Tom Urich as Admiral Bill Clancy

He “straightened out” a “fractious, messed up” Chegwidden while serving on post-Vietnam war USS Farragut by trying to “knock some sense into him on the fantail.” Killed by Craig Allenby a hunting guide but Chegwidden had to prove that it wasn’t suicide. He aided Chegwidden’s investigation by appearing in several dreams.

Mary Page Keller as Commander Beth O’Neil

A “shining star” female naval aviator who was charged with sexual harassment by a conceited Lieutenant who recieved a poor fitness report.

She eventually left the navy and was flying for the CIA when Harm had his stint with the “company.”

Art LaFleur as Richard Kern

Vice Admiral who retired to take cooking lessons in France because he was “slowing down” and if he “couldn’t be out in front, he’d rather be out of site.” His retirement left Chegwidden the last active SEAL left from his old unit.

A no-nonsense psychiatrist who didn’t put up with excuses and therefore could break through Mac’s walls of denial and defense in order to actually help her.

Teresa Yearwood as Teresa Coulter

She is a reservist forensic pathologist who has helped Harm and Mac on many cases. Her life was shattered by her father going to Leavenworth for killing her mother.

W. Morgan Sheppard as Viktor Lushov

A Russian Air Force Pilot who interrogated Harmon Rabb Sr in Vietnam about the “Iron Hand Missions.” He became a friend and saved Rabb’s life. Although Rabb had lied to him, he told the KGB that Rabb was “helpful” which got him taken to Russia instead of killed. He finally told Harm about it and gave him his father’s KGB number.

Thad Luckinbill as PO Moritz

The only known client to “fire” Harm. Upon recommendation of Lt Mark Gordon (who H got acquitted for clipping a cable in Italy) he selected Harm as defense but Harms heart wasn’t in it and was doing a poor job. Harm eventually was moved to continue searching for an explanation and nearly killed himself flying with a vertiginous pilot who had killed his RIO and blamed it on Moritz.

Rudi Boesch as Himself

Admiral Chegwidden greeted him warmly as his old Sr instructor at BUDS. (really a runner-up contestant on “Survivor” who had a cameo part in JAG) He happened to be the REAL coffee drinker Chegwidden was trying to find and had just stopped in to say hello to AJ while he was doing book signings.

Hector Elias as Pvt. Rafael Jesus Rivera

Hero at the battle of Chosin reservoir who was inappropriately charged with desertion and ended up saving Gunny’s life when a corrupt sheriff tried to have him killed to stop him from a land grant court action.

as Peter Tyree

A airman who dreamed of being a pilot and was court-martialed by Turner for “misappropriation” of a trainer.

Harm personally took him for an exhilarating flight in his Stearman “Sara.”

Sandy Ward as “Pop’s” Grahowsky

The hanger manager and mechanic who looks after “Sara” Harm’s Stearman in “New Gun in Town”. Harm values his fatherly advice and philosophical discussions. (Name was never mentioned until after Mattie took over his hanger)

Mark Henderson as Rick Stoechler

An old family friend of Harm’s who was assassinated by the Chinese after he discovered a “mole” in his unit. Webb was actually feeding the mole disinformation so he “set up” Stoechler as a traitor. Harm vindicated him with a “classified trial” in “mixed messages.”

Clayton Norcross as Lucas Pendry

Although only shown in “Jinx” he was mentioned in many other episodes. He was a close personal friend of Harm’s, despite the latter’s affection for his wife annie.

Michael McGrady as Jack Keeter

Very close personal friend of Harm’s with the habit of landing planes where he shouldn’t. First his “modified” F14 in Cuba where Harm was assigned to rescue him in a lear jet (“smoked”); then, a “stealth” jet in the deserts of Iran and became a prisoner where Harm and Mac had to extract him (“The Black Jet”).

Stephen McHattie as Gunnery Sgt. Ray Crockett

The Marines best sharpshooter who “burned out” on killing and had an agreement with his old COs to keep him doing training until discharged. His new CO wouldn’t listen to him about the agreement so he took a shot at his jeep mirror, “to gethis attention.” He repeated the event using H as the target in “High Ground”.

Jameson Parker as CIA director Harrison Kershaw

Probably, mostly a good guy; but, he never gave either Harm or Mac much more than grief, and only when they forced him to.
