"One Who Came Back' Personal review and story
- Stef Loisou
I have enjoyed TCM for many years, particularly after awakening very early in the morning and during many early evenings. One early Saturday morning several years ago, I viewed, by chance, an airing of this documentary and, being a former US Army Engineer officer and proud supporter of our military, I was intrigued with this documentary and how well it was filmed and narrated. I am also a senior age 65 . Also, since I still watch many MASH television episode reruns, I was also interested in the actual depiction of our original MASH unit where lead character George Kritzman was treated for his critical injuries.Well, after watching this documentary, I looked up George Kritzman through an internet location site and promptly called him and explained my story to him of how I reached him through viewing the documentary. Though George and I have not yet met, though we have attempted to do so, we became great "letter" and "telephone" friends and have exchanged much communication with each other. His wife Millie is quite sweet and pleasant and is so excited every time I call so she can direct the phone to George.George is now a bit ill and his sight is severely limited, but, I am so pleased to have come to know him and Millie through my viewing of "One Who Came Back" I strongly recommend viewing to anyone of any age who cares about our country and for the care given our soldiers. This documentary clearly depicts that our freedom is not free.

That was the unit that Richard Hooker who wrote the Book MASH was stationed and was tje 4077th
What a terrific documentary, as well as a great educational tool for us civilians. Shows yet one other example of bravery in the line of fire and caring for fellow soldiers who were wounded in battle. This system of rescue and evacuation is truly an example of including a lot of good in a very rough situation, as war truly is. Thank you, TCM, for showing this little documentary. Please continue showing it.

My Dad, Captain George "Bud" Barnett, flew Mitchell bombers in WWII and was called back to fly helicopters in Korea. At the end of his tour, he crashed, and went through almost exactly what this soldier did in ,"One who came back". He was overcome by emotion not only from the familiarity, but how well the film was done. I very much want a copy, please release this for all the people involved in that conflict. Where would we be without their sacrifice and service? Thank you, his son, George Barnett Jr.
One Who Came Back
- John Hindsill
The soldier featured in this army public relations film is a friend of mine. I met him about fifteen years ago; we meet for coffee several times a month. He recovered enough to have a career as an LAPD officer, and as an anthropologist specializing in California Native American archaeology and culture. In addition to his Korean War service, he also was an infantryman wounded in WWII.The first person narration was done by a professional actor, but that big smile while in hospital is all George.

About "One Who Came Back"
- Ed Lapinskas
An excellent film which documents the actual processing of a soldier wounded in combat during the Korean War. The film covers all aspects of how combat wounded soldiers are treated and cared for. From a historical perspective, the viewer has the opportunity to see South Korea in 1951 and the hopital technology as well as the types of vehicles and transport planes available for our military, at that time.Being a former combat soldier and wounded in action, I found this film very thorough and valuable for historical archival purposes as well as educational for civilians. In other words - I understand the narrator. I have been down that road in a later war though. An excellent documentary, for sure.
