QUIZ ANSWER: TV MEDAL OF HONOR WINNER

Last week I asked about fictional winners of the Medal of Honor,
specifically a TV series character.  The series?  F-Troop.

"The quirky show, which originally aired on ABC from 1965-67,
stars Ken Berry as Capt. Wilton Parmenter, a gallant yet completely
incompetent officer who won the Medal of Honor by accidentally
ordering a charge during the final battle at Appomattox. For his
"heroism," he is awarded command of Fort Courage, an infamously
dangerous frontier fort in Kansas. What he doesn't know is that
the battles between the local soldiers and the hostile Hekawi
tribe (derived from "where the heck are we") are staged, a mere
simulation intended to help the Indians sell cheap souvenirs
to tourists."
