This is the biography about how the mash helicopter was used during the korean war

The Bell H-13 Sioux was used in the MedEvac role as a litter carrier in Korea, following initial fielding in 1951. In the MedEvac role a cacoon-like stretcher pod could be mounted on each skid. A distinctive feature of the Bell Model 47D, military H-13G, was the "Goldfish Bowl" plexiglass canopy, known to many from the TV-series MASH, set in Korea. The H-13 earned the nickname "Angel of Mercy" for evacuating some 18,000 United Nations casualties during the war. Modifications were made to the H-13 by Medical Detachment personnel to improve patient comfort. Litters were outfitted with removable covers with Plexiglas windows over the patient's heads. Warm air was piped from the engine manifold into the litters to make the wounded soldiers more comfortable. Plasma bottle holders were mounted on the exterior of the cabin door openings to facilitate blood replacement while airborne.
