A personal note for the Editor: MASH was among the influential shows that helped my choice of Careers. In 1987, I joined the United States Army Medical Corps. My military occupational specialty was in Psychiatry. My desire to work with those suffering from the scares of war came from what I had learned from Programs like MASH and others.
I was often compared to the Chaplin and the Psychiatrist as I also had religious training. Very few could compare to such characters, but the show touched my life as I am sure it touched yours.
