Synopsis by Hal Erickson
An outraged Hawkeye (Alan Alda) and Trapper (Wayne Rogers) try to alert the authorities that a peaceful local village was accidentally bombed by American artillery. They turn their evidence over to Major Stoner (Frank Aletter), who promptly destroys it lest the army be cast in an unfavorable light. But the truth, crushed to earth, rises again -- and ironically, it is the xenophobic Frank Burns (Larry Linville) who ends up spilling the beans. "For the Good of the Outfit" initially aired on October 6, 1973.
