About SaxtonEdit

Saxton is B.J.'s patient and he is recovering in post-op after an operation but the MASH has run out of morphine painkillers. So the MASH staff devise some sugar pill placebos to give to them. B.J. gives Saxton a placebo and he asks B.J. if one is enough. B.J. assures him that they are very potent and one is more than enough. Later he tells B.J. he is still in pain but B.J. tells him to give it time as it takes longer with some people. Saxton insists it isn't working so B.J. says he will give him one more, but that's it because they are just too strong. We hear nothing more from him, so it is assumed the pills worked.

Saxton's rank is not given or mentioned nor is he ever seen in uniform, but in the M*A*S*H series it is a common practice to give ranks to Corporals and Sergeants in the billings and list Privates simply by their last names, so it is deduced that Saxton is a private.

Saxton might be a marine. In the opening scene of the episode, in the O.R. while operating on the soldiers Potter mentions that the marines may be good fighter but are lousy drivers. According to Hawkeye, their troop truck went over a cliff, leading to many of the patients having broken bones. They were, it seems, returning from the front after a battle when the accident happened.
