Storyline

McMurphy, overworking herself into exhaustion and on the verge of a nervous breakdown, is forced to take R&R until she has enough rest. She then finds herself caught up against an unrelenting, good-natured Jeff Hyers, a young combat medic. Disturbed by the fact that so many of the men killed in action weren't old enough to attend their senior prom in high school, she inspires Boonie and Hyers to put one on for the GIs of China Beach. Meanwhile, Wayloo's pursuit of Boonie's story of his combat history results in unforeseen and unfortunate consequences. Also, an Army helicopter pilot peruses Frankie and shows her the joys of flying. Written by Anonymous
