About Maj. OvermanEdit
When Hawkeye is blinded after trying to re-light the nurses' gas heater, Col. Potter orders Radar to contact a nearby Ophthalmologist, Major Overman, to the 4077th immediately; to hasten Overman's arrival, Radar poses as a fuming mad general! The doctor examines Hawkeye, and bandages him up. Hawkeye only has one question: is the blindness permanent? The doctor can't give him an answer, and says he'd be back in a week. When he returns and takes off Hawkeye's bandages, Hawkeye's sight has returned! After the successful examination, Overman asks Potter, "Who is General O'Reilly?"
