My father.

He was a family practice physician and surgeon. He was a Captain in the U.S. Army during the Korean War serving as a surgeon in a M*A*S*H (Mobile Army Surgical Hospital) unit for almost 2 years.

In the 1970's I got him to watch the TV show M*A*S*H once and then he was hooked on it. Although he said that the real thing wasn't nearly as funny as they made it out to be (of course), he also said the operating room scenes and depictions of the miserable living conditions were fairly accurate.

His younger brother Ellsworth was also an M.D. and served in a different medical unit in Korea at the same time. Twice the Army allowed the two brothers to take R and R together, both times flying to Japan to enjoy a few precious days away from the endless surgery and carnage of "America's forgotten war" in Korea.
