  • Trivia

    • Nitpick: Grace Aviation, where Harm picks up work as a crop duster, is in Blacksburg, Virginia. In reality, Blacksburg is about a four-hour drive from Falls Church (where JAG HQ is ficticiously located on the show). However, Harm refers to it as "100 miles" away, and seems to make the round-trip drive on his motorcycle every day.
