And now for a little free association, when I named this photo, it reminded me of one of the best ever TV characters (in my opinion), Hawkeye Pierce from M*A*S*H played by Alan Alda. I watched this show about staff at a hospital during the Korean War during my formative years, and I do believe Hawkeye lent me a few of his attitudes and political leanings. I grew up with this and Hogans Heroes. They don’t make war sitcoms these days that I’m aware of, but these were some great shows.
