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.
