Henry is in an incredibly crotchety mood; neither Trapper nor Hawkeye can kid him out of it. When one of the chopper pilots, Cowboy, is wounded for the umpteenth time, it is not very serious, but Hawkeye sympathizes with him. Cowboy has been expecting a letter from his wife that is long overdue; Hawkeye tries to talk Henry into allowing Cowboy a short leave. Henry is not himself: he sides with Frank, refusing to allow Trapper borrow his jeep, he snaps at Radar and he denies Cowboy's leave. Strange incidents begin to befall Henry (i.e. the latrine blows up with Henry in it). It is driving the entire camp crazy trying to avoid being part of Henry's next accident. Everyone wants their CO to take a trip, for his safety and their sanity. But, will Henry really be safer away from the 4077? Written by

When Cowboy and Henry are flying around in the helicopter, high tension wires are visible in the background. There were no high tension wires in Korea between 1950-1953. See more
