Colonel Lynch was introduced to viewers in the pilot episode of The A-Team as the very first Military Colonel to be chasing the soldiers of fortune. The Colonel’s connection with The A-Team came from him being the commander of Fort Bragg, the maximum security prison where The A-Team escaped. Colonel Lynch had been chasing The A-Team ever since the break-out in 1972.
Colonel Lynch was chasing The A-Team during season 1 and part of season 2 until his replacement was brought in on the second series. His replacement was the Legendary Colonel Decker.
Note that Colonel Lynch was successful in capturing the A-Team on one occasion. An official from the United States State Department helped them escape again, but this in no way diminishes the fact that Colonel Lynch completed his mission.
