I first remember Henry Morgan as Officer Gannon on "Dragnet", which I would watch on reruns. I then began to watch MASH every week, and seeing him as first a crazed General, then as Colonel Sherman T. Potter, a man who brought some humility to my tv screen. I still watch MASH whenever it is on tv. Even after over 30yrs, and having seen every single episode, it still brings enjoyment every time I watch it.
Time for you Col. Potter to ride your horse Sophie off into that never ending sunset!!
RIP cuz.....miss you!!
