    From what I understand the *s were only put in by the producers of the movie because they thought it looked better on the poster; the books and the real hospitals had no *s at all, and neither did the actual name of the movie. The TV producers liked that look, so they made the *s part of the official name of the show (and the opening credit sequence, of course), but they don't actually mean anything at all.

    Here's the poster:

    I always thought it was an acronym. Mobile Army Surgical Hospital.
    I guess I was misinformed. Thx, Jeff.

    MASH is definitely an acronym, for (as you said) Mobile Army Surgical Hospital, but the *s were never used in any military capacity, and the author of the books never used them either.

    Timing is everything.

    I'm not playing DP 2018, but if there's a 2019, it needs to start on New Year's Day, and there needs to be a keeper rule.

    While you were away nobody wanted to start it, and I was appointed to do it, but I was not motivated enough. I hardly have motivation to get out of bed, much less tag a bunch of people to try and get an active thread going.
