Aced it, 8/8. This was one of the best MASH episodes. The best part was Burns hooking up an IV to himself to donate blood while still operating. when Frank is giving his version of the OR that day.

Frank was a hoot.

5/8 All guesses except the Teddy Bear answers. The answer to #2 is in the picture for #8 (but I guessed it right before I saw that).

How about a quiz concerning which stars were actual combat veterans, such as Eddie Albert?
Dan Blocker in the Korean War. James Doohan of the proud Canadian army.
James Garner was wounded twice, once by one of our air force fighters as he was trapped
behind enemy lines and was mistaken for the enemy, "friendly fire".
Mickey Rooney entertained the troops in France, but between shows he would go up to the front
lines and do the job he was trained for, sniper. Some blamed the brutal nature of that job for his
later drinking problem.
And paratrooper Rod Serling saw plenty of fighting against the Japanese.

" How about a quiz concerning which stars were actual combat veterans"
Well they have done a few stories on MeTV celebrities that were veterans in a respectful manner.
