MASH 8055 was the unit that MASH 4077 of the book, movie and television series was patterned after. It was the first Mobile Army Surgical Hospital to be activated in South Korea in July 1950. In 1952 it was re-designated at the 43rd Mobile Army Surgical Hospital and finally had a permanent at Camp Humphreys where it was deactivated in 1997.
