About GarveyEdit

The MASH is getting overcrowded with patients but they are unable to evacuate any of them to other hospitals. Lieutenant Garvey, who is in charge of dispatching the ambulances, refuses to send them forward into the combat zone because there is too much shooting going on. The Lieutenant, whom Klinger describes as a very new lieutenant, says that he had personally signed out for the vehicles and if they get shot up or damaged, he would have to pay for them. He refuses to give in even when Potter yells at him, telling him that the army expects its vehicles to get shot up. He tells Potter to call again when the shooting quietens down.

But, help is at hand. General Coogan, one of the patients at the MASH (who would very much appreciate a bit more space and privacy), decides to help  "persuade" Garvey. He asks if the lieutenant has a good reason for withholding the ambulances. Garvey assures Coogan that he has. "So, why don't you come up here right now in the flesh - and tell me what it the flesh or what's left of it." The thought of coming up into the combat zone himself suitably intimidates Garvey, and the ambulances are dispatched right away.

Another view of Garvey enjoying his sliced ham sandwiches. His rank insignia is never seen Potter calls him a First Lieutenant. On the left lapel is the wheel insignia of the Transportation Corps. This is also possibly the insignia worn by Lieutenant Smilin' Jack Mitchell.
