Trapper says that Mr. Kwang is "up on desertion charges." But according to military law, desertion is based on the intent never to return to duty. Mr. Kwang left the base for the birth of his child and seemingly had no intention of fleeing his military obligation. He should have been listed as AWOL, which is the accurate (and less severe) charge of leaving the base without a pass (even though, he actually did have a signed pass that Col. Blake didn't recall signing). See more »

Wedding Scam and the Enlisteds versus the Officers
7 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A young man comes to Hawkeye and Trapper to get a checkup for what appears to be a hooker. At the same time, a young Korean aide who has medical skills, is trying to find his wife. He was shanghaied by the Korean army and hasn't seen his wife. She is pregnant and will be having the baby soon. The boys find out that the innocent looking young guy is part of a scam to get Korean women to the states where they will start plying their trade. Hawkeye takes Radar with him to pick up the pregnant wife but she goes into labor on the way back. Once again, Frank gets in the way of everything as they try to do the right thing. A decent though unbelievable episode. There are times when this show was so simplistic.
