It is a black and white episode; a male war correspondent, Clete Roberts, discusses the newest method of wartime medical care, the M*A*S*H model. He visits one of the five M*A*S*H units in Korea, the 4077, to interview the personnel. Roberts asks about the newest advances in treating casualties, morale, the families of the soldiers, their recreations in Korea, drinking, what they miss about home, the relationships that have blossomed into family, how they conquer boredom, etc. The interviewer weaves a tapestry from the commentary and off-hand remarks of the interviewees.
