Comments: Trying to find medical records for a Donald F. Schneider who was wounded in the Korean war three separate times and was treated at the 8209 Mash unit. Anyone who can give me directions on where to begin would be greatly appreciated. Cannot find records to prove he was injured in war and was not given his final discharge papers.

Comments: I guess that I should have put the above comments in this section. Sorry about that.

Keywords: I was assigned with the 52d Med Det(Hcptr Amb) which was collocated with the 46th Surgical Hospital Mobile Army (46th MASH)in 1954 near the Punch Bowl in Korea. The doctors, nurses, and enlisted men in the 46th were a group of professional soldiers who took very good care of the patients that entered their facility.
We, medical evacuation helicopter pilots, were also a very professional group of soldiers that flew in all kind of weather with no flight following or weather reporting facility to bring the patients to the MASH or to fly them to the 121st or 11th Evac Hospitals in Seoul approximately 100 miles away. We, 52d MD(HA) and 46th MASH soldiers got along really well and we worked hard but we also played hard. We really complemented each other and it was a most enjoyable tour of duty except for being away from our family back in the states.

WHERE WAS THE 46TH?

Comments: I have always wondered where the 46th was located. I was wounded on May 24, 1953 at the Punchbowl in North Korea, near the east coast. I was awarded the purple heart on orders from the 46th army surgical hospital, APO 301. Until I was evacuated to Japan, I was awake very little. I woke up for a short time in a large ward full of patients, this was in korea. I assumed it was a field hospital. Was it the 46th? Just curious.

Comments: My father, Dr. Russell Goldbaum, was stationed as a surgeon at the 46th Surgical MASH Unit of the 45th Division under General Phillip Ginder. He was there 1951-1953.

During his stay he organized a photography club and constructed a darkroom that ran 24/7. He and I are compiling his memoirs. His first book Captain Red, relays the story of Sirkorsky and the advent of the helicopter.

Is there anyone out there who has recollections they'd like to share of General Ginder and the 46th MASH? Any idea the date Ginder's headquarters was destroyed? Does anyone remember Ginder's steel fireplace or the white marble walkway to headquarters? Does anyone have photos developed in the darkroom? - Liz Goldbaum

MASH AS SEEN ON TV

Comments: I have watched MASH on tv for years, and I am appalled at the attitude of the characters!!! I cannot believe doctors of rank behaved as BJ and Hawkeye do on the program. I find it hard to believe that people who actually served in this capacity would allow this program to be aired without some sort of protest. My father died during the Korean conflict and was a pilot during WWII, and I cannot see HOW behavior such as portrayed by supposed officers of the military can be allowed to be shown on national tv as behavior that was actually lived. I am aware that MASH is a very old program, but I do not believe that officers were complete asses and that people like B J and Hawkeye really existed!

I'd like to hear from someone who was an actual member of a MASH unit to find out if this behavior actually existed.

Thank You,
Peggy Quinn
