Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The 4077th has had an inordinate amount of wounded lately, and the blame cannot entirely be laid at the feet of the Enemy. It turns out that the US Army is saddled with a certain Colonel Lacy (James Wainwright), whose bullheaded incompetence has cost him the highest casualty rate of any batallion commander. To stem the flow of blood, Hawkeye (Alan Alda) is forced to desperate measures--so desperate that even B.J. (Mike Farrell) is shocked and appalled.
