Weekend Event: Korean War: M*A*S*H*

Today is the 66th anniversary of the end of the Korean War (July 27, 1953). Technically, the war never ended as a peace treaty between North and South Korea was never signed, and the tensions continue even today.

M*A*S*H* is often called a movie more about the Vietnam War than the Korean War, but both the movie and TV show keeps the Korean War in popular culture. The movie also inspired one of the most popular and critically-acclaimed TV shows in history, including record-setting ratings for its series finale on February 28, 1983.

i used to watch mash, yet i think the show somewhat glorified war, while it depicted the atrocities of medical units

Re: korea
We definitely got a sense of what working in a MASH unit was like. I read an article about MASH units once and it was even more horrific than we saw in either the movie or TV show. :(
