Overworked and Underpaid
21 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Hawkeye becomes incensed when he finds out that civilian doctors are working for the military, getting paid a huge amount of money for minimal services, but they don't have to put in time in the Army. He decides to send a bill to the Army (well over 38,000 dollars). The second plot line is Charles being given the task of instructing three Korean doctors in the fineries of U.S. medical procedures. He treats them with disdain and condescension, even though they have every right to be there. Charles has another problem. He is totally doubled up with back pain. The Korean doctors claim they can help him, but nothing doing.

Meanwhile, Pierce tries to get his pay, but he is laughed at and even threatened. He takes a jeep as partial pay. Soon he is facing off with a colonel who has no sense of humor at all about what is going on. Fun episode. I especially liked the three Koreans.
