Captain Hunnicutt's Medal!!
30 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Captain B.J. Hunnicutt had plans of going fishing for three days. He met Lieutenant Prioire at the M*A*S*H 4077th. He took Captain Hunnicutt to the chopper port and started their journey for fishing. Little did they knew that two wounded soldiers were bleeding profusely in battle. He made a futile attempt of rescuing the wounded soldier -- using the rope to launch him to the chopper. Enemy fire hit the chopper; and Lieutenant Priorie told Captain Hunnicutt to cut the rope. Captain Hunnicutt was shocked and dismayed about doing that task.

In the meantime, Colonel Potter spoke to General Schwerrin about Actress Marilyn Monroe arriving at the M*A*S*H 4077th. The two were welcoming the actress to the camp. Colonel Potter had everyone prepare for her visit. The post-operating room had a "Welcome Marilyn Monroe" banner being hung for the decoration. The only problem: they spelled her first name wrong. From there, Captain Pierce contacted the 20th Century Fox Studios and spoke to the studio operator. His hesitation in answering the questions concerning the movie star caused chaos and eventual disconnection of the telephone call. Major Winchester was irritated at Captain Pierce's antics. The two of them would have to find some way to contact the studio operator over the telephone ... all while they were in Korea.

Captain Hunnicutt was still finding out the wounded soldiers in question. Three soldiers were wounded near Inchon. He found out the soldiers did not match the ones in the description from a chopper or from an ambulance. General Schwerrin presented Captain Hunnicutt with a bronze medal for his bravery ... even if Marilyn Monroe would not arrive at the M*A*S*H 4077th because of her filming commitments with the studios. Captain Hunnicutt's bronze medal was the result of his heroics in the battlefront. He told Captain Pierce that he had no idea of what was it like for him to cut the rope in a war zone. He prayed to God that he would never had to know that responsibility in a war zone. He eventually gave his medal to Corporal Sonneborn at the end of the episode ... for getting his rear out in one piece. Character was the stronghold in that episode. A Brilliant 10!! Highly Recommended!!
