A helicopter crash introduces the 4077 to Colonel Sam Flagg, the well-built (says Hotlips) paranoid with a broken arm who refuses all painkillers. Colonel Flagg (who can also be identified as Major Brooks, Lt. Carter, Ensign Troy and Capt. Louise Klein) is CIA. Meanwhile, Trapper's friend, Vinny Pratt, also drops in; Vinny is Intelligence (G-2) and he wants to find out what Flagg is doing. Flagg is BIG, so his operation must be crucial. Because of Fr. Mulcahy, Vinny cannot be Capt. Perkins the priest, so he becomes Capt. Stone, the engineer. Vinny Pratt introduces himself to Henry as Major Strauss G-2 and tells Henry to call him Pratt. Flagg tells Hawkeye Flagg is Carter and Stone is really Martinez; so, if Martinez is there, the operation must be really BIG. Flagg is in the CID; he tells people he is CIA because it throws off people who think he is CIC. Then, Flagg re-breaks his own arm so he can continue treating...and spying. The surgeons have had more "intelligence" for one ... Written by
Colonel Flagg (who appeared earlier under another name) is the star of this, part of the CIA or is it the CIC or he may be a CPA. He crashes in a helicopter and breaks his arm and Hawkeye sets it for him. Anyway, the whole espionage thing is hilarious. He comes in and immediately intimidates Henry who would give the camp away to save his own skin. Eventually, Flagg finds his way to the Swamp and puts everyone on notice that he can do horrible things to them. Soon another guy shows up named Stone. Apparently, these guys keep an eye on one another. Of course, Margaret is taken with the big lunk and Frank is his usually jingoistic self. That is short lived as Trapper and Hawkeye falsify Frank's records, making him look like a subversive. All in a day's work.
