Production code K410

Original air date November 17, 1973

Set during the Korean War in the 1950’s

Plot Summary: Hawkeye's picnic date with new nurse Lieutenant Marquette is interrupted by gunshots, which Hawkeye believes to be from Frank Burns, testing his new pistol, but as he and Margaret insist he has yet to fire a shot, the gunshots continue, confirming they are coming from a sniper. The four head back to the camp, where everyone but Radar and Blake, who are both in the showers shelters in the main hospital building, eventually managing to treat casualties which soon arrive.

Help from headquarters is not immediately forthcoming, and Frank's attempts to be "a real man" (encouraged by Margaret) leads him and Hawkeye to ambush a figure in the mess tent, who turns out to be Radar, desperate for food. It's not until the following day that outside help arrives, in the form of a US army helicopter firing shots at the sniper. Hawkeye operates on the sniper, and reports to the Swampmen that the sniper targeted the camp in the belief that he was firing on MacArthur's headquarters.

Hope you enjoy it,

Kenny, Meds & Al
