==MASH Mistakes Seasons 1-11==
*In 1/1 MASH ignores the [[Pusan Perimeter]] of June-Dec 1950; MASH Also received a fictionus "Certificate of Merit 4th Class"-as also a ''Meritatirous Unit Commeration" in 4/24; in realty it would have received a [[Presidential Unit Citation (United States)|Presidential Unit Citation]].
*IN 1/3 and 1/4 MASH is under command of General "Wilson Spaudling Barker"; in 4/16 his name is given as General "Bradley Barker"; also the early MASH epsiodes tell that MASH is under the control of [[US I Corps]]-a unit which was in Korea 1950 to 1953-but not in the [[DMZ]] until the last year of the war!
*In 1/11 Major Burns has [[anemia]]-yet in 5/24 he is forced to give blood!
*In 1/12 Hawkeye descends into a foxhole in summertime; the only battle on Xmas in Korea was at the Chosin Resoviror-which was the coldest on record. {Despite this epsiode being Xmas 1950, Xmas 1950 is repeated twice-in 7/15 and 9/5!}
*In 2/10 [[Plot Hole]]-the sniper is recovering-after being hit by half a clip of .45 calibur bullets!
*In 2nd, 3rd and 4th season parts of epsiodes are cut out of syndicated versions-in:
**1/8 The Officers Latrine is blown up with Blake inside.
**2/10 Hawkeye & Trapper John dress Burns up as "General MacArthur";
**3/1 Steele making Blake and Burns salute him and being shot at and the anoucment of Steele new postion;
**3/22 Klinger's bribe to Blake;
**4/7 HAwkeye and BJ have the POW make Burns a fool of himself.
*In 3/4 Visiting General dies in Houlihan's tent and his body is found in ambulance after accident; during Korean War only 1 US General died in first year of the war-[[Walton Walker]] who died in a traffic accident in December 1950-not in a MASH unit. <small>—Preceding [[Wikipedia:Signatures|unsigned]] comment added by [[Special:Contributions/|]] ([[User talk:|talk]]) 12:16, 23 April 2008 (UTC)</small>
