Lt. Harriet Beaumont Sims-Roberts came to JAG Headquarters in April of 1997 to
temporarily aide Commander Harmon
Rabb, Jr. with a prosecution case
of a Cheif Petty Officer staioned in Norfolk. Harriet has served as
the Public Affairs
officer of the USS Seahawk, and in January of 1997,
she was transferrred to the Inspector General's office in Norfolk,
which is the office that allowed her a temporary duty assignment to JAG.
Harriet is patient, hard-working, and sweet, though, a touch naive. When
she served on the Seahawk, she met Lieutenant
Bud Roberts and the two
felt and immediate attraction. Once she had been transferred to Norfolk,Virginia
was able to continue their blossoming romance.
In becoming accustomed to her new surroudings, Sims turned to Roberts
for support as the two dated, but their military-based
romance will not
always be sailing on smooth seas. The couple was married in May 1998,
and despite usual customs, they
are still in the same command.
