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!

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

Goodbye, farewell, and amen.
