Histories for 22nd Surgical Hospital




A "Real" MASH Unit!
I don't know of anyone who hasn't seen at least one episode of Alan Alda's long running MASH tv show! Well, the 22nd was a REAL MASH Unit, doing "Meatball Surgury" 24/7. We even had some real life "Characters" too." Doc Saw Bones" was our Ortho Guy. Our Nurses & Red Cross Girls stayed in "Ft. Apachee" and that was Off Limits to any Male personnel. Of course that didn't stop some of us!!!!!! I remember, we used to have these fri night "Cook Outs". The Doc's used to get Steaks & real Italian Bread flown up from DaNang & we would have these massive cook outs on 50 gallon drums cut in half. Drink a lot of beer & try to forget! As my memory returns to me ( Its been 35 yrs) I'll try to submit more, but this is all for now!
