Throughout his childhood, Hawkeye had an imaginary friend, Tuttle, who knocked over garbage, broke windows and wet the bed. When Hawkeye resurrects "Captain Tuttle" to requisition food and supplies for Sister Theresa and the orphanage, he stirs up a mare's nest. Henry orders his newest officer to take on O.D. duty, Frank is miffed that Tuttle has not reported to him as 2d in command and Hotlips is just, plain hot...as soon as she reads the "official" record (as written by Hawkeye, Trapper and Radar). The 6'4," 195 lb. auburn-haired, hazel eyed Captain Jonathan "Johnny" Tuttle, M.D. makes great reading. Hotlips calls General Clayton to check on Tuttle and Hawkeye impersonates Gen. Clayton. When the guys arrange for Capt. Tuttle to receive 14 months of back pay, this turns into a special citation and award ceremony for the industrious hero. Will someone appear to accept all of these military honors or will Hawkeye finally be busted? Written by
