Land Mine Blake
21 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When a guy named "Cowboy," is wounded, he becomes paranoid about what is going on with his wife back home. He requests a leave. The guy is a heroic rescue helicopter pilot with an incredible record. Henry, normally a pushover, denies the leave. At that point, bad things start to happen to Henry. He is shot at while playing golf, a jeep runs through his tent while he is sleeping, and a bomb goes off when he is in the latrine. He suspects Hawkeye and Trapper, but even though they are upset with him, they truly have nothing to do with it. Suddenly, the camp begins to move away from Henry. When he sits down to lunch, all the people at the table leave. Radar sends memos from an outer office, using fishing line and a reel. I don't know if the perpetrator is ever a mystery here, but this is pretty good episode.
