Another Great Character
17 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The letter was a staple for this series. In this case, psychiatrist Sidney Freedman writes a letter to Sigmund Freud. He tells of the antics of the various characters, trying to analyze them as he goes. There has been a practical joker in the camp and he is trying to figure out who it may be. In the process, he talks to Margaret, Hawkeye, and the rest. While he is there, an ambulance accident takes the life of the driver. A second plot line has to do with a bomber pilot who simply flies out, drops his load, and returns for dinner at the officer's club. Hawkeye makes sure he sees what the results are. Sidney has been feeling sad because a boy with whom he was working killed himself. He is doubting himself as a giver of advice. In the end we get to see who the practical joker is and learn a lesson.
