About Colonel HershEdit
When the 4077th starts experiencing heavy shelling while Hawkeye, Trapper, Radar and Nurse Mason are all listening to the Army-Navy game in Henry's office, an unexploded bomb lands smack dab in the middle of the camp -- in front of the CO's office! After attempting to identify the markings on the bomb Hawkeye, in agreement with Trapper and Col. Blake contancts Army HQ and then gets directed by a Hersh as to try to find any markings on the bomb which can identify who it belongs to.
When Hawkeye calls Hersh, HQ is also experiencing heavy shelling as well. Hersh, who tells Henry that that they could'nt identify the bomb as to whether it was Chinese, or Soviet, or any other country, but was unsure, he directs Col. Blake, who is now on the horn with him, to contact the Navy as to if they we're doing any inland target shelling, when Blake asks Hersh, "Well, why woul the Navy want to bomb us?". Hersh answers, "Because we're beating them 14-0!"
