Hawkeye operates on a five-year old Korean boy who recieved some shrapnel fragments in his side. Radar says that no one knows where his family is. The little boy touches Trapper deeply. Radar tells Hawkeye and Trapper that not only does no one know where his family is, but that Henry wants to take him to the local orphanage. Hawkeye says that they will take care of him, and Trapper writes his wife to ask if they can adopt him. Everyone pitches in to care for him, and Trapper gets the letter saying that his wife approves. While on a picnic with Frank and Margaret, he wanders into a minefield, and Trapper runs in after him and gets trapped. One of the chopper pilots flies in and rescues them both, and the nun who runs the orphanage comes to camp with the boy's mother. Trapper and Hawkeye have a toast to Trapper's wife.
