In the "Preventative Medicine" episode in Season 7, in OR, the O.R. is swamped with wounded; the doctors also notice that all the wounded have multiple shrapnel wounds, from all directions. Col. Potter explains these soldiers are part of Colonel Lacy's] (played by James Wainwright) unit, the 603rd Battalion, which sustains more casualties than any other in Korea. When Hawkeye, who operated on Private North, he gives him the good news that his wounds are recovering nicely, North then responds "Damn, they're going to send me back to that maniac!", when Hawkeye responds "Let me guess...Colonel Lacey!", North then responds Doc, I swear...if they send me back to that maniac, I'll kill him!"
Later, when Col. Lacy, the commander of the battalion blessing the 4077th with the overload of casualties, himself arrives to hand out Purple Hearts to his men, none of them will take them, most notably North, who says to Lacy "I don't anything from you!"
