"After M*A*S*H" was a spinoff of M*A*S*H which depicted the lives of some of the characters after they returned from the Korean War. Sherman Potter, Father Mulcahy and Maxwell Klinger each work at General Pershing, a Veteran's Hospital in Missouri. In the series we see Soon-Lee, Klinger's wife, again. We also meet Mildred, Potter's wife, for the first time. Besides these familiar characters, we meet many new characters. Mike D'Angelo is the administrative head of the hospital. Alma Cox is his assistant. She does a lot of work for Mike D'Angelo out of a secret love for him; however, he still seems to have feelings for his ex-wife. Bonnie Hornbeck is Alma's secretary. Dr. Gene Pfieffer is a resident at the hospital.
