Trivia

The story that Pierce and McIntyre relate to Sgt. Condon about Charles R. Drew (the black doctor who developed the process for preserving blood plasma) dying for lack of a blood transfusion because the hospital refused admit him since he was black is untrue. Although the story is told in several books, Dr. John Ford, one of the passengers in Dr. Drew's car, said that the injuries to Dr. Drew were such that a blood transfusion would have killed him faster. According to Dr Ford ""We all received the very best of care. The doctors started treating us immediately. I can truthfully say that no efforts were spared in the treatment of Dr. Drew, and, contrary to popular myth, the fact that he was a Negro did not in any way limit the care that was given to him."

Goofs

Hawkeye and Trapper tell a racist white patient that Dr. Charles Drew, who invented the process to store blood, bled to death after a car crash because he was black and a "whites only" hospital refused to admit him. While Dr. Drew did in fact invent a way to store blood, and died in a car crash, the story surrounding the "whites only" hospital is not true according to his biography. See more »
