In this final episode, the staff of the 4077th M*A*S*H unit find their lives no less hectic despite the fact that it appears that the war may soon be over. Until then, the staff must deal with events like Hawkeye has been temporarily institutionalized due to a nervous breakdown, Winchester has finally found people who share his taste in classical music and Father Mulcahy has been permanently deafened in a mortar attack. At last, the ceasefire is declared and the staff must come to grips with the fact that this time in their lives is over. Written by

Broadcaster from Armed Forces Radio:
In human terms, the cost was much greater. The U.N. forces have suffered the following casualties - Killed in combat - 71,500. Missing and captured - 83,263. Wounded - 250,000.

Of all of the well-written, high-impact movies that I've ever watched (hundreds), this one caught me off guard. I watched this one evening, many years ago, after coming home from class. I was so intrigued by the movie that I asked my mom if I could skip dinner... as I continued to watch the movie I could not help but cry.
This is a great way of closure for one of the most intriguing shows on television. I would highly recommend watching this movie when your mind has time to think about what takes place.
