A year later he was chief surgeon of the 8076th Mobile Army Surgical Hospital near the front lines in Korea.

Immediately upon arriving in camp, Apel performed 80 hours of surgery. His feet swelled so badly that he had to cut his boots off, and he saw more surgical cases in those three and a half days than he would have in a year back in Cleveland. There were also the lighter moments. When a Korean came to stay at the 8076th, word of her beauty spread so rapidly that they needed MPs just to direct traffic. Apel also recalls a North Korean aviator, nicknamed Bedcheck Charlie, who would drop a phony grenade from an open-cockpit biplane, a story later filmed for the television series.

He also tells of the day the tent surrounding the womens shower was accidentally blown off by a passing helicopter. In addition to his own story, Apel details the operating conditions, workload, and patient care at the MASH units while revealing the remarkable advances made in emergency medical care.
