Lt. Col. Henry Blake: The mother says it is.

Radar's Little Bundle
2 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A group of refugee farmers show up at the 4077th. They have been displaced and claim the camp is on their land. They build accommodations and do what they can to keep going. Of course, they are sitting right in the middle of the action. Henry doesn't know what to do with them. To make matters worse, a young woman comes in with a baby and claims the father is Radar. He denies it but everyone in the camp is willing to believe he really fathered the child. Soon the Judge Adjutant General's office sends a man to investigate. The sad thing about this episode is that if these people were to relocate, they would probably end up in a pretty sorry situation. It's another episode that shows how the indigenous people of the warring country are affected by everything.
