I missed #'s 3 (I clicked on Margaret's name before I saw Klingler's and the word both) and # 6
(I clicked on Hawkeye because I never knew that Col. Potter was part Indian).

Both Radar and Potter liked horses. Both Radar and Charles liked comic books. Klinger only stayed for a little while after war.

Yes, Radar and Potter liked horses, but Charles never liked comic books.
Klingler stayed after the war to help his (new) wife - Soon-Yee look for her parents after they were forced from their village after it was bombed.

#19 - Frank Burns received one Purple Heart for being injured in a war zone.
He was injured by a shell fragment. An egg shell fragment cracking a 3 minute egg.
His Purple Heart was taken, by Hawkeye Pierce, and given to a Korean newborn.
The Korean newborn had received a bullet wound, after his mother had been shot while carrying
him, before giving birth in the camp.
Please, MeTV, fix the erroneous question.
Oh, and don't mess with canon.

I got 19 out of 21. Bonus if you remember who Radar's favorite comic book hero is.

21 of 21. I am the Ultimate Masher. Greatest show in history. Favorite scene was Klinger dressed as Statue of Liberty as Gen. McArthur rolls by,

If you were the "Ultimate Masher" as you say, then you will know that it was Radar dressed as General MacArthur.
He's lucky he wasn't court-marshalled for impersonating a general officer.

If you were the "Ultimate Masher", as you imply, then you would know better.
Yes, Radar dressed as General MacArthur, for the REHEARSAL.
General MacArthur showed up EARLY, and saluted the Statue of Liberty (Max Klinger), as he was driven out of the camp. His, General MacArthur's, feet never touched the ground. Just a quick inspection drive through the camp.
You're lucky you aren't being court martialed for an egregious wrong, and spelling.

20 of 21. Even though I got the answers they had two horrible questions: Radar is also a fan of horses, and it's his love of them that brings Sophie to Potter. Burns twice RECEIVED the Purple Heart, they were just both stolen from him by Pierce/Trapper/BJ to give to those they felt were more deserving.

I clicked on number three too soon, I missed that it had a "both" option!
Gosh darn it!
Oh well, at least Potter still saluted me!
That's the only thing that really matters in life!
My life's ambition has been satisfied!
I pity those poor folks who only got 19/21!
HA!

Um Klinger stayed in Korea after the war to look for his New wife's parents! Yes he eventually got back to the states in After MASH but he stayed for her.

Klinger stayed to help his wife look for her family. I don't know if they found them before After Mash or finally gave up looking. I was thrown on the comic book question because I thought I remembered Charles saying to the guy who stuttered that he enjoyed reading Captain Marvel or something.
DavidHanes Maris 5 months ago
The interaction was with someone who could no longer play the piano "I have been reading Captain Marvel since he was a non-com" And the comics Radar read did not exist at that time. The Avengers did not come out until the 60's.
