Hawkeye's background and family situation changes quite a bit during the run of the series. At the beginning he is from Vermont, both parents are living, he has a married sister that sends him an oversized homemade sweater, and a nephew.

This is still one of the funniest shows on television, especially the first four seasons when they still had a broad sense of humor. To me the glory days of M*A*S*H ended with the departure of Larry Linville (Major Frank Burns). After his departure, especially in the final three years, the show became more and more issue oriented and pretty much lost me until the classic finale. Other than that, it was still a great show.
