The original Swamp Rats (Spearchucker, Trapper and Hawkeye) are happy for their CO when Radar reads the telegram from Gen. Hammond. The 4077 has the best and highest efficiency rating of all the M*A*S*H units in Korea and Henry is receiving a citation. But the citation comes with a promotion in Tokyo, leaving Frank in charge. Like the other Huns, Frank has no consideration for the officers, NCOs or enlisted men. He expects Radar to work past 2 a.m., and then he orders reveille at dawn, calisthenics and snap inspections. Then Ferret Face really joins the Weasel family: he confiscates the still. Desperate times scream incessantly for desperate measures. Thank the one above (not MacArthur) that doctors are trained to measure... Written by

When Henry decides to go back to the 4077th with Hawk and Trap when he believed Radar was sick, they took a chopper from Tokyo to the camp. Tokyo to Seoul is 721 miles as the crow flies, but the Bell 47 single engine, single blade chopper, which is what they used, had a range of only 214 miles, thereby making a chopper flight impossible as they could not stop and refuel several times while flying over the ocean. Also, with a top speed of only 105 mph, the flight would have taken about seven hours, making it impractical, too. They would have just taken a plane. See more
[after receiving an award
You people, you great doctors and you swell gals, who made this possible, are just too numerous to mention, but I'm mighty grateful to all of you - right down to my Right Hand, Cpl. Radar O'Reilly, who incidentally is in command of this unit, and just uses me as a front.
