In one of the best remembered and most emotional episodes of the entire 11 year series, Radar has an announcement for Henry in O.R. Henry Blake has received his discharge: he is finally going home to Bloomington, Illinois, to his wife, Lorraine, and their children, the country club and his medical practice. The entire 4077 gang is thrilled for Henry and they wish him well; gifts are gotten, parties are thrown and all sorts of final memories are made. But, the entire gang is sad to be losing such an integral part of the 4077 gang. Radar, in particular, is losing the man who was a father to him.

As Henry starts to leave, Radar steadfastly holds his salute to his departing C.O. until Henry finally acknowledges him.

I was absolutely bawling, I don't know a better way to ruin an absolutely awesome character. I felt as though I was dragged into the set. I loved Henry (McLean Stevenson) and I just felt extremely sad when this happened to him, no one better deserved to be sent home than him. This is an excellent episode. I also felt sorrow with characters such as Radar and Hawkeye and it was made even worse when Hawkeye, in the following episode, didn't get to say goodbye to his soul mate in Trapper. I also think that Frank is an idiot in the show and Larry Linville is an awesome actor! M*A*S*H is brilliant! Can you get a better series?
