  • Sgt.Carter is down because he does not get love letters, and Gomer tries to help.

    Gomer feels bad for Sgt. Carter, because he does not get love letters like the rest of the plattoon. Gomer makes up his own love letter to send to Sgt. Carter, not including the name so Sgt. Carter thinks it is a woman. Gomer even puts perfume on the letter. Funny scene as Gomer is talking to an eldeley man in the library, and explains he is sending the love letter to his Seargant. Sgt. Carter has 3 women in mind who could have sent the letter, and decent scenes are next as he finds out it was not from those 3 women. His buddies want to see the love letter writer at a dance, so Gomer makes up a letter saying good-bye. All 3 of the women end up sending love letters to Sgt. Carter. I thought this episode was average. The plot and resolution were fine, but it lacked a lot of funny scenes.
