The US Army has just decommissioned its last MASH...
The US army has decommissioned its final Mobile Army Surgical Hospital, a unit made famous in the 1970 film MASH and a long-running TV series.It's all CASH now...
The last MASH was handed over to the Pakistani military in Muzaffarabad to continue treating quake victims there.
MASH units were founded in 1945, but have been replaced with combat support units that get closer to the frontline.
The film and TV series were black comedies on the life and loves of a MASH crew during the Korean War.
The 212th MASH was the last in the US army. It was the first US army hospital to be established in Iraq in 2003 and is the most decorated combat hospital in the army.
