After the war, he went to medical school, and began his service as an Army doctor in ,  serving in World War II.
One of his most cherished possessions is his Good Conduct Medal , an award "only given to enlisted men", Potter explains to Radar while unpacking.
Potter is married to Mildred, and they have only one daughter and one grandson in some episodes, while in others he has multiple children and grandchildren.
Potter was created as a different type of commanding officer than his predecessor: a " Regular Army " career officer, and close to retirement.
But despite his stern military bearing, Potter is a relatively relaxed and laid-back commander, not above involving himself in camp hijinks and understanding the need for fun and games to boost morale during wartime, particularly in the high-pressure atmosphere of a MASH.
In fact, when Hawkeye and B. He also has his eccentricities, including a love of horses from his cavalry days and an ability to use his Regular Army connections to the unit's advantage.
Unlike Blake, he is not afraid to put his foot down when the camp's antics get out of hand, but this is more out of not wanting to see his troops get into trouble outside of the camp.
In addition, Potter, who had been handling administrative work prior to his assignment to the th, possesses formidable skills as a surgeon and for keeping morale high in the operating room.
Potter is well-liked by his subordinates, especially Radar, who comes to see him as a mentor and father figure after Blake's transfer stateside and subsequent death.
Potter receives more respect than Blake did from Major Houlihan, but Major Burns harbors a grudge against him after being passed over for command.
In turn, Potter holds Burns' feigned military bearing and subpar medical skills in contempt. Potter takes pride in the competency of the rest of the medical staff despite their antics.
Burns' replacement Major Winchester has a grudging respect for Potter, even though their respective personalities are often at odds with one another.
Potter initially takes a hard line against Klinger's attempts to get discharged, but is convinced to let him continue cross-dressing, and eventually assigns him to be his new company clerk.
As an indication of their respect for him, in the final episode Hawkeye and B. The character also appeared as a central character in AfterMASH , a spin-off starring the three cast members who had voted unsuccessfully to continue the first series.
Among the resident in-patients is one of Potter's subordinates from World War I, who addresses him as "Sarge" as opposed to his retired rank of colonel.
Major Franklin Delano Marion "Frank" Burns is the main antagonist in the film played by Robert Duvall and the first five seasons of the television series Larry Linville.
Burns first appeared in the original novel, where he had the rank of captain. In the novel, Burns is a well-off doctor who attended medical school, but whose training as a surgeon was limited to an apprenticeship with his father in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
Nonetheless, he maintains a dismissive attitude toward his better-trained colleagues, blaming others for his own failures. Being of the same rank as Hawkeye in the novel, Blake tries to make sure neither is on duty at the same time, but cannot do so when things get busy.
In the novel, the extent of the relationship between Burns and Houlihan is unclear and only rumored to be sexual, but in the film, it is overtly sexual and broadcast throughout the camp when Radar puts a microphone in the cabin window.
After the "Swampmen" learn that Burns is having an affair with Major Margaret Houlihan, Hawkeye taunts him about it, baiting him to attack just as Blake enters the tent.
The next day, Burns is permanently sent away for psychiatric evaluation in a straitjacket, shot full of tranquilizers. In the novel, the confrontation is less violent, and Burns is simply transferred to a VA hospital stateside.
In the film and in the subsequent TV series, Frank Burns' rank is that of major. The film version includes elements of the novel's Major Jonathan Hobson, a very religious man who prays for all souls to be saved.
In the TV series, he is very high-strung, with a penchant for uttering what are often bizarre or redundant cliches and malapropisms; one example is from "The Interview" season 4, episode 24 , in which Burns describes marriage as "the headstone of American society".
In the TV series, Burns is a firm believer in military discipline and continues to fancy himself a superior surgeon, but his actions invariably reveal his incompetence and require one of the other surgeons to prevent him from making fatal mistakes.
Though by military rank Burns is second-in-command of the unit, he is outranked in medical matters by Hawkeye, who reluctantly accepts appointment by Blake as Chief Surgeon.
When Burns is left in command of the unit per military regulations , he generally micromanages camp operations, just for the sake of being in command, but demonstrates a profound lack of military competence as well.
Burns and Hawkeye recount opposing versions of the events. Burns claims that he was performing superior work even going so far as to donate blood to a critically wounded soldier in between treating patients and performing the Last Rites benediction in Latin for the deceased after Father Mulcahy passed out from exhaustion.
Burns further asserts that the other surgeons could not keep up with him and complained that he was pushing them too hard. In Hawkeye's presumably far more accurate account, Burns was borderline hysterical and performed his duties with signature incompetence, which resulted in the near-deaths of multiple casualties.
After being confronted by Hawkeye, Burns was knocked unconscious by the operating room door. In an early episode, however, before his character becomes more of a buffoon, he demonstrates himself to be an efficient though, again, micromanaging commander.
In addition to his gullibility, Burns was shown to be incredibly greedy, selfish, and occasionally childish; he is involved in a prescription kickback racket and falsifies his income taxes.
He is also overly suspicious of Koreans, going as far as to claim that South Koreans are communist infiltrators and hustlers, and is openly racist against Native Americans although Colonel Potter, being part Cherokee, sternly puts a stop to that early on.
Despite his ongoing affair with Major Houlihan, he is unwilling to divorce his wife because his money, stocks, and house are in her name.
In one episode, " Major Fred C. Dobbs ", his greed is such that he turns down a transfer to another unit because he is tricked by Hawkeye and Trapper into thinking there is gold in the hills near the camp.
Both medals are stolen by Hawkeye and given to people who earned them: an underage Marine played by Ron Howard and a Korean mother and her infant son who had been shot just before she gave birth.
Burns's only friend in the unit is head nurse Major Margaret Houlihan, with whom he has an ongoing affair that they believe is discreet, but which is common knowledge in the camp.
They share a disdain for the "un-military" doctors, against whom they conspire ineffectively. His wife eventually hears of the affair and threatens him with divorce; he denies it, describing Houlihan as an "old war horse" and an "army mule with bosoms", thus beginning a rift that leads to her engagement to Donald Penobscott, a handsome lieutenant colonel stationed in Tokyo.
Following Houlihan's marriage in the fifth-season finale "Margaret's Marriage" also Larry Linville's last appearance on camera as Frank Burns , in the two-part sixth-season premiere episode "Fade Out, Fade In", which also introduces his temporary later permanent replacement, Major Charles Emerson Winchester III, the th learns that, shortly after the wedding, Burns suffered a mental breakdown while on a week's leave in Seoul.
He accosts a female WAC , a female Red Cross worker, and an army general and his wife in a hot bath, mistaking the couple for the Penobscotts.
He is transferred stateside for psychiatric evaluation, but although the th is delighted to be finally rid of him, Burns seems to have the last laugh.
He later telephones and tells Hawkeye that he has been cleared of all charges, promoted to lieutenant colonel and assigned to a veteran's hospital in his hometown.
Nothing else is known about the character's fate post show. Burns' departure from the series stemmed from Linville's frustration with the character, which he felt offered no further opportunities for development.
She is the regular-army head nurse of the th, and begins allied with Major Frank Burns against the more civilian doctors of the unit.
Later in the series, particularly after the departure of Burns, she becomes a more sympathetic character, softening her attitude while still serving as a foil for their antics.
Margaret is an army brat , born in an Army base hospital, the daughter of career artillery officer Alvin "Howitzer Al" Houlihan.
She entered nursing school in and graduated in when she joined the Army. She served in World War II but it is unknown if she served stateside or overseas.
She is the head nurse of the th MASH, the highest-ranking female officer in the unit, and fiercely protective of the women under her command.
Her nickname "Hot Lips" has different origins in the original novel, film, and TV show. In the novel, the phrase is first used by Trapper John McIntyre, when he is flirting with Margaret after learning about her affair with Frank Burns.
Unbeknownst to them, a hidden PA microphone is broadcasting their conversation to the whole camp, including her growl to Frank, "kiss my hot lips".
In the TV show, the origin of her nickname is never shown or explained in detail, though it seems to refer to various aspects of her passionate nature.
Midway through the series, the "Hot Lips" nickname phases out, with characters addressing her as either Margaret or Major Houlihan, though her nickname is still referenced occasionally.
For instance, in the sixth-season episode "Patent ", when Margaret is in a bad mood after losing her wedding ring, a nurse describes her as "Hot Lips Houlihan: Blonde land mine".
Hot Lips! Early on in the TV series, she is a stern "by-the-book" head nurse, but willingly goes against regulations for her own gain.
She uses her sex appeal to her professional advantage as well as personal satisfaction, as shown by her relationship with Frank Burns.
In early seasons she had several liaisons with visiting colonels or generals who were "old friends". She is an experienced surgical nurse, so although she thoroughly disapproves of the surgeons' off-duty tomfoolery, she is able to set her personal feelings aside to appreciate their skills, such as when she came down with appendicitis and asked that Hawkeye, not Burns, perform the surgery if needed.
In later years, she becomes a more relaxed and less criticizing member of the unit, tempering her authority with humanity.
Key episodes in this development include the season 5 episode "The Nurses", in which she plays the role of a stern disciplinarian, but breaks down in front of her nurses revealing how hurt she is by their disdain for her; and "Comrades In Arms" season 6 , in which Hawkeye and Margaret make peace as they endure an artillery barrage together while lost in the wilderness, though they had also shown more mutual respect for one another before when they have to go help a front-line aid station in "Aid Station" season 3.
Drinking problems appear to run in her family. She once told Frank that half of her salary went to support her mother; half of that money went towards drying her out, the other half for bail money her mother was a kleptomaniac.
Her long-standing affair with Frank ends with her engagement and subsequent marriage to Lieutenant Colonel Donald Penobscott. The marriage does not last long; she later finds out a visiting nurse had had an affair with him.
Though he promises to work things out with her, he has himself permanently transferred to San Francisco, and she divorces him, regaining her self-confidence.
In the wake of her split with Burns, she becomes more comfortable with at least some of the unit's more unorthodox ways and as time progresses, becomes a willing participant in some of the hijinks.
Despite their long-running mutual antagonism, Hawkeye and Margaret come to develop respect and affection for each other, reflected in a long passionate farewell kiss in the final episode.
She returns to the US to take a position in an Army hospital. In the series of novels co-written with or ghost-written by William E.
Butterworth, Houlihan reappears as the twice-widowed Margaret Houlihan Wachauf Wilson, both husbands having expired on the nuptial bed through excessive indulgence in her still-outstanding physical charms.
Her career has taken a new direction as the head of the "God Is Love in All Forms Christian Church, Incorporated", a cult or sect with the unusual distinction that its entire congregation consists of gay men.
Most of these are extremely flamboyant and the Reverend Mother herself is conspicuously glitzy and glittery. However, it appears that Margaret genuinely cares for her flock and is not merely shaking them down in pursuit of material gain.
The name Charles Emerson Winchester was derived from three real street names in the city of Boston.
Though Winchester did embody some antagonistic qualities similar to that of Burns, he proved over the course of his time on the series to be a very different character than his predecessor, being far more intelligent, humane, and kind.
Charles Winchester was born in his grandmother's house in the Boston, Massachusetts , neighborhood of Beacon Hill , and is part of a wealthy family of Republican Boston Brahmins.
After finishing his secondary studies at Choate , he graduated summa cum laude class of from Harvard College where he lettered in Crew and Polo , completed his MD at Harvard Medical in Boston in , and worked at Massachusetts General Hospital.
Keeping with the show's tradition of replacement characters who are in some way the antithesis of their predecessors, Winchester is as skilled a surgeon as Burns was inept—although he had to learn how to perform meatball surgery —and he is as cultured as Burns was low-brow.
Indeed, in one episode during a verbal joust with Pierce and Hunnicutt, Winchester is able to match them true story for true story due to his cultured upbringing and skill, culminating in him revealing he even once dated actress Audrey Hepburn producing a candid photograph of them as proof to the astonishment and chagrin of B.
Although the character was originally intended to develop a romance with Houlihan, [ citation needed ] the chemistry between the two was not there, so Charles and Margaret maintain a platonic, professional friendship.
Winchester is often adversarial with Hawkeye and B. He has a keen but dry sense of humor, and enjoys practical jokes as well as the occasional prank to get revenge on his bunkmates for something they did or for his own amusement.
Behind his snobbery, he was raised with a sense of noblesse oblige and was capable of profound — albeit sometimes misguided — acts of kindness.
For example, in "Death Takes a Holiday" he anonymously gifts an orphanage with expensive chocolates a tradition in his family.
Initially outraged to find that they have been sold on the black market, he learns that the candies were sold to buy staple goods, as the orphanage director apologizes.
Winchester reflects: "It is I who should be sorry. It is sadly inappropriate to give dessert to a child who has had no meal. In "Morale Victory", he sends for a copy of the score for Ravel's Piano Concerto for the Left Hand to give encouragement to a pianist who can no longer play with his injured right hand.
In "Run for the Money", he stands up for a wounded soldier whose comrades and commanding officer mock his stuttering, encouraging the young man to live up to his intellectual potential.
At the end of the episode, he listens to a recorded letter from his sister Honoria, who turns out to likewise be a stutterer.
Classical music is one of his great loves, helping him to maintain his morale. In the series finale, following the sudden death of the Chinese POWs he has been teaching a work by Mozart , Winchester states that music has transformed into a haunting reminder of the horrors of the war.
After the war, he returns to Boston where the position of Chief of Thoracic Surgery at a prestigious hospital awaits him. The character was portrayed by Gary Burghoff in both the film and on television, the only regular character played by a single actor.
Robespierre O'Reilly. Radar is from Ottumwa, Iowa , and joined the army right out of high school.
He seems to have extra-sensory perception , appearing at his commander's side before being called and finishing his sentences.
He also has exceptionally good hearing, able to hear helicopters before anyone else, and to tell from the rotor sounds if they are coming in loaded or not.
It was these abilities that earned him the nickname "Radar". The character is inspired by company clerk Don Shaffer, who also was born in Ottumwa and nicknamed "Radar" by his compatriots, and who served alongside Hornberger in Korea.
In the film, Radar was portrayed as worldly and sneaky, a characterization that carried into the early part of the series.
He carries with him a pocketful of passes for any potential scam that might arise, and has a racket of selling tickets for spying through a peephole into the nurses' shower.
Another time, he cons nearly every member of MASH into buying mail order shoes. He is known for his tremendous appetite for heaping portions of food, is not averse to drinking Henry Blake's brandy and smoking his cigars when the colonel is off-duty, and he occasionally drinks the moonshine liquor that Hawkeye and Trapper make in their still.
Soon after the pilot episode, Burghoff noted that the other characters were changing from the film portrayals and decided to follow.
He has a virginal awkwardness with women, and a fondness for superhero comic books. He runs the camp public address system and radio station, which are often used in minor gags; in one episode he transmits messages to a Navy carrier by Morse code.
Radar frequently looks to the doctors for advice, and increasingly regards Henry Blake and then Sherman Potter as father figures, having lost his own elderly father at a young age.
Radar is also one of the very few people Hawkeye Pierce has ever saluted an event that occurred after Radar was wounded during a trip to Seoul and was given a Purple Heart , showing just how much Pierce respects him.
Radar is promoted to Second Lieutenant as the result of a poker game debt "Lt. Radar O'Reilly" , but soon returns to Corporal after discovering that life as a commissioned officer is more complicated than he had originally thought.
It was Radar who entered the operating room to announce that Colonel Blake's plane had been shot down over the Sea of Japan, with no survivors.
When this scene was shot, none of the other actors had been told that Blake's character had been killed, as the director wanted to capture authentic shocked reactions.
Burghoff appeared in every episode of the show's first three seasons. After season three, doing the series had become a strain on the actor's family life, and he had his contract changed to limit his appearances to 13 episodes per season out of the usual By season seven, Burghoff started experiencing burnout and decided it was time to quit; he finished season seven, then returned the next season for a two-part farewell episode titled " Good-Bye Radar " in which Radar was granted a hardship discharge after the death of his Uncle Ed to help on the family farm, which he accepted after being satisfied that Klinger could replace him.
He left his teddy bear behind on Hawkeye's bunk as a parting gift and symbol of his maturity. In that movie and proposed series, the O'Reilly family farm had failed and Radar had moved to St.
Louis and become a police officer. Production never proceeded past the pilot, which aired once on CBS. He was played by George Morgan in the pilot episode of the series, but the producers decided that a quirkier individual was needed for the role.
In the novel and film, Mulcahy is familiarly known by the nickname "Dago Red", a derogatory reference to his Italian—Irish ancestry and the sacramental wine used in Roman Catholic Communion.
While most of the staff is not religious, they treat Mulcahy with some respect. It is Mulcahy who alerts the doctors that the camp dentist "Painless" is severely depressed.
Afterwards, Mulcahy reluctantly helps the doctors to stage the famous "Last Supper" faux suicide, to convince Painless that he should continue with life.
He is bewildered by the doctors' amoral pranks and womanizing behavior, but is usually forgiving of their jokes and sarcastic remarks, commenting once that "humor, after all, was one of His creations".
When Radar places a hidden microphone inside Hot Lips's tent as she and Frank Burns have sex, members of the camp listen in, and Mulcahy at first mistakes their conversation and noises for an episode of The Bickersons , leaving abruptly when he realizes otherwise.
He is from Philadelphia and is frequently seen wearing a Loyola sweatshirt. He has a sibling, Kathy, who is a Catholic nun.
His sister's religious name is Theresa. There is a running joke that Mulcahy always wins the betting pools.
On one occasion, when asked how he knows what bet to place, he looks to the sky with a smile. His luck at poker is unremarkable, however.
He donates his winnings to the local orphanage. Mulcahy understands that many of his "flock" are non-religious or have other faiths, and does not evangelize them overtly.
Rather than lecturing from authority, he seeks to teach by example "Blood Brothers" , or by helping someone see the error of their ways "Identity Crisis".
Although his quiet faith in God is unshakable, Mulcahy is often troubled over whether his role as chaplain and religious leader has importance compared to the doctors' obvious talent for saving lives.
This is despite being told by Cardinal Reardon, a prelate visiting Korea to evaluate the effectiveness of the chaplains serving there, that "you're a tough act to follow".
He is repeatedly passed over for promotion, but eventually rises to the rank of Captain after Colonel Potter intercedes on his behalf "Captains Outrageous".
Although he is ordained as a Catholic priest, Mulcahy demonstrates a familiarity with other faiths, such as offering a prayer in Hebrew for a wounded Jewish soldier "Cowboy" and explaining the rituals of a Buddhist wedding to other attendees from the camp "Ping Pong".
In the series finale, while releasing POWs from a holding pen in the path of an artillery barrage , he is nearly killed and loses most of his hearing when a shell explodes at close range.
He tells his friends that he intends to work with the deaf following the war, but only B. An experimental procedure was said to have restored most of his hearing.
Corporal later Sergeant Maxwell Q. As for Klinger's religion, in an early show, Klinger said he gave up being an atheist for Lent.
The character's original defining characteristic was his continual attempts to gain a Section 8 psychiatric discharge from the Army, by habitually wearing women's clothing and engaging in other "crazy" stunts.
His first appearance was in the fourth episode, " Chief Surgeon Who? When Colonel Potter takes command, Klinger immediately tries the same with him, but Potter sees through the scam immediately.
In the second half of the two-part episode " Bug Out ", which inaugurated the fifth season, Klinger reveals that it took him three years to accumulate his collection of dresses, implying that he was cross dressing before the Korean War began.
Klinger eventually gives up his attempts at a Section 8 when he is picked by Colonel Potter to become the company clerk following Radar's discharge.
He is later promoted to Sergeant "Promotion Commotion" and begins to take his duties even more seriously; the writers had decided to "tap into his street skills" to flesh out his character.
In the eighth-season episode "Dear Uncle Abdul", Klinger writes to his uncle — who successfully used cross-dressing to stay out of the Army — about the crazy goings-on in camp, ending with the reflection "It's no wonder I never got a Section Eight — there's nothing special about me; everybody here is crazy!
In the third-season episode "Springtime", Klinger marries his girlfriend, Laverne Esposito, via radio. In season six, he receives a Dear John letter from Laverne saying she has found another man, whom she later breaks up with, then becoming engaged to Klinger's supposed best friend.
When Colonel Potter denies his hardship authorization to go home to try to save his marriage, considering it another fake story, the frustrated Klinger tears his dress, shouting that his cross-dressing was fake.
From then on, he wears his Army uniform, and has given up on his attempts to "escape". In the final episodes of the series, Klinger gets engaged to Soon Lee Han Rosalind Chao , a Korean refugee; when proposing to her, he suggests she wear the wedding dress he had himself worn in one of his attempted Section Eight escapades and explains to her what white means in his culture.
She refuses to leave Korea until she finds her family, leading to the irony that although the end of the war means Klinger is free to return to the US, he chooses to stay with her.
However, she faced racial discrimination and he turned to bookmaking , and is only able to escape prison time when Sherman Potter offers a character reference and hires him as his assistant at the veteran's hospital in Missouri where he now works.
In the book Duke Forrest is described as under six feet tall, with red hair, blue eyes, and 29 years old. He is married with two daughters.
As portrayed by Skerritt in the film, he stands at 6'1" and is dark-haired. Skerritt was 37 years old at the time.Tags: phone, army, surgical, hospital, korean, tv, show, movie, war, heliopter, sioux, alan alda, radar, drink, funny, death, nurse,mens, mashklinger, potter, colonel, swift, hawkeye, pierce, hot lips, farrell, hunnicutter, frank burns, usa, america, comedy, series, teddy, bear, mash, guns, roses, metal, petals.

It is implied he assisted Hawkeye and Trapper in their schemes on the sidelines. However, the producers added a final scene to his last episodein which Radar article source news that Blake's plane has been shot down, with no survivors.
