Good-bye, Col. Potter

The snippet that keeps running though my head was where his jeep got run over by a tank and he walks up to it sadly, and then, being former cavalry, shoots it!

RIP Col. Potter!

Weird, I feel like someone I knew from my childhood has died. What
a kindred personality he was.

RIP indeed. Great in Dragnet, and great in MASH (in both roles that he played - Col. Potter and General Steel.)

Goodbye, farewell, and amen.
