Hawkeye (Alan Alda) takes up the cause of young Cpl. Walker (Jerry Zaks), who wants to marry his Korean sweetheart and ship the girl and their baby back to America. Unfortunately, Hawkeye runs up against the intractable Lt. Willis (Burt Young), who refuses to bend the rules under any circumstances and is ultimately foiled by his own human weaknesses. While on another romantic front, Hawkeye discovers anew that beauty is only skin deep. "L.I.P. (Local Indigenous Personnel)" was first broadcast on October 27, 1973.
