'M*A*S*H' star Harry Morgan dies at 96

I know Harry Morgan's acting role on M*A*S*H was of a Commanding Officer - Colonel Sherman T. Potter. In real life, I was an enlisted man, honorably discharged from the U.S. Navy. Mr. Morgan is definitely someone I'd be willing to stand at attention, and salute. With me having a copy of all the M*A*S*H episodes on DVDs, and watching all of them over the past few months, it just so happens that I was watching the final two-hour episode from about 11 PM last night (Tuesday, December 6, 2001) on into 1 AM this morning (Wednesday, December 7, 2001). My words, in honor of Mr. Morgan, are going to be the title for that last episode of M*A*S*H. "Goodbye, Farewell, and Amen".

I am a HUGE M*A*S*H fan, and also have all the episodes on DVD.I didn't start watching it until after the series ended, but once I started watching it in syndication, I was almost obsessed! Knew "every" detail of every episode at one point, and owned memorabilia books. Very sad that Harry Morgan has died. And very spooky that you had just been watching the final episode! It's odd, but I expect all the actors in the show to be the same age as they were in the series. So when I see one of them or hear of one their ages it catches me by surprise. I guess it's like with school teachers - you expect them to be the same age and look the same as when they were your teacher.
