Radar regularly slept with his teddy bear while stationed overseas during the Korean War.

When Radar returned to America, he gave the Teddy Bear to his best friend Doctor Benjamin "Hawkeye" Pierce (Alan Alda).

Before the MASH unit left Korea they buried a time capsule. One of the items placed inside was Radar's teddy bear. A symbol of innocence, the bear reminded us all that though the soldiers who came to Korea may have been boys when they arrived...they all went home men.

Once Radar, thinking a tattoo was a pathway to manhood, decided to get one. He chose the tiny image of a teddy bear and had it discretely placed on his butt. Actually Radar changed his mind at the last minute and had the tattoo artist only draw, not etch, the teddy bear onto his skin. It came off when he showered.
