While building the camp's "beautification project", some of the rocks are being painted white. This is strictly forbidden in previous episodes (supposedly because they could be spotted by enemy aircraft). See more »

A Letter to Harry
26 April 2015 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Hawkeye is fed up with peace talks going nowhere, and decides to write a letter to President Truman. The camp really needs an industrial size water heater. Instead of listening, a Colonel tells the leadership they need to "beautify" the camp. If they do a good job, they will get a water heater. The camp does get into the project but they aren't happy. Mulcahy is instructed to try to reduce the problem with venereal diseases. Charles is given the job of immunizing prostitutes and is quite annoyed. Margaret is in charge of project but feels something is lacking. They talk about creating a fountain for their new garden. Also a young Marine who has lost his sight because of ethyl alcohol. All these things are sent to Harry and as most episodic offerings, this works pretty well.
