The US military said today it planned to shut down its final Mash unit – a mobile hospital made famous by a long-running American TV show about the Korean War.
The last Mash – or Mobile Army Surgical Hospital – is in Pakistan caring for survivors of the earthquake that hit the country. The unit will close on February 16 when the Army donates the facility to Pakistan, Rear Admiral Michael LeFever said.
“This is the last Mash unit in the US Army,” LeFever said. “We are excited that this Mash will live on in Pakistan.”
