Colonel Decker in my opinion was the best adversary that the A-Team had. Many times Decker thought he had the A-Team trapped and cornered when they pulled off another daring plan to let themselves free.
"First appeared in the second season episode "When You Comin' Back Range Rider?" Supposedly carried a grudge against the Team - especially Smith - since Vietnam. Would be the primary MP "Bad Guy" until the episode "Mind Games" in the 4th season, although Colonel Lynch was given a second chance in the 3rd season episode "Showdown!" and Colonel Briggs was introduced in the 3rd season episode "Fire!"
