Vietnam War Comedy

I happened to mention Hogan's Heroes to my husband and he made the observation that the purpose was to heal after WW2. He also pointed out that we'd had comedies for every war so far but Vietnam.

Then he said, "Well, MASH was actually about Vietnam."

That may be so, but it couldn't be explicitly about Vietnam. That's why it had to be moved back in time to Korea.

Will we ever be ready for a Vietnam sit-com?

Perhaps when the wounds actually start healing. Iraq may play a large in this, either way.
