Thank you to those who have served.

May our species find a time when such service and sacrifice are no longer needed.

Peace on earth.

I too, somehow missed the dates crafted to bring young men to their deaths in Vietnam.

I dunno how......I just was not asked to serve and die, thank God.

I stayed at home and listened to PPM and Dylan and MASH.
And knew somehow, that they were right.

MASH somehow hit home.
Because it was such a great bit of acting, it hit home.
That was the sum total of my Vietnam experience.

And that scared the s''' outta me.

MASH is set in Korea.

MASH (stylized as M*A*S*H on the film's poster and art) is a 1970 American satirical dark comedy film directed by Robert Altman and written by Ring Lardner, Jr., based on Richard Hooker's novel MASH: A Novel About Three Army Doctors. It is the only feature film in the M*A*S*H franchise. It became one of the biggest films of the early 1970s for 20th Century Fox.

The film depicts a unit of medical personnel stationed at a Mobile Army Surgical Hospital (MASH) during the Korean War; however, the subtext is really about the Vietnam War. It stars Donald Sutherland, Tom Skerritt and Elliott Gould, with Sally Kellerman, Robert Duvall, Rene Auberjonois, Roger Bowen, and, in his film debut, football player Fred Williamson. The film inspired the popular and critically acclaimed television series M*A*S*H, which ran from 1972 to 1983.
