Good Bye Wayne Rogers, Trapper John McIntyre on "M.A.S.H."

Intro by SJ Otto
One of the main characters of a show I have always loved, Wayne Rogers is dead. He was best known for his portrayal of Trapper John McIntyre on "M.A.S.H." "M.A.S.H." was one of the best sit-comes of Television history. It was anti-war and maybe at times, anti-imperialist.
In a time when most TV shows glorify the military,  "M.A.S.H." did the opposite. It was the right show for the right time. I'm glad the show was made and Rogers Trapper was a delight. So long Wayne Rogers

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Wayne Rogers, whose Trapper John McIntyre on "M.A.S.H." was among the most beloved characters on one of the most popular shows of all time, died Thursday.
The actor was surrounded by family when he died in Los Angeles of complications from pneumonia at age 82, his publicist and longtime friend Rona Menashe told The Associated Press.
As army surgeon Trapper John on "M.A.S.H.," Rogers swapped wisecracks with partner in martinis and mischief Hawkeye Pierce, played by Alan Alda.
