About Lt. BrannumEdit
In the episode "As Time Goes By", reports of a sniper who is rumored to have shot a G.I. arrives. The G.I. in question, Corporal Stoddard (Mark Herrier) who was also expected, does not arrive, neither does the chopper pilot who was said to be transporting him to the 4077th. Both Stoddard and Brannum, the missing chopper pilot, both arrive the next morning, with the pilot explaining that the chopper's fan belt busted, forcing them to land. A sniper's bullet hit their radio, leaving him unable to call anyone. The chopper (Michael Swan) quietly picks up a new fan belt, and leaves.
