Episode cast overview:


The daily mail brings its usual batch of good news and trauma. Colonel Potter finds out that he is about to become a grandfather and spends the day trying to find out whether or not his daughter-in-law has delivered his grandchild. Radar gets a home movie from his mom in Iowa, which causes Radar to shed a few tears. However, the most emotionally troubling mail is for Frank as his wife reveals that she found out about his affair with Margaret and informs him that she is filing for divorce.

Radar brings the mail around and a few pieces comprise the ammunition for this episode. First of all, Hawkeye gets his small town newspaper and bores people nearly to death reading the sappy stories. Potter is informed that his daughter is about to give birth which leads to a mad scramble to get news from home. There is also a pool to guess the weight, sex, and specific date of birth. The most interesting, however, involves a letter from Frank's wife, saying she wants a divorce. It seems that word got back to her about his dealings with Major Houlihan. Fireworks fly as Frank tries to play on both sides of the fence. Finally, a film has arrived for Radar. It leads to a nice conclusion. Once again, Margaret keeps trying to please Frank but there may be some interesting stuff ahead.
