In late Feb or early March '67, Faas accompanied our Recon Platoon on patrol. We had two major engagemts with VC earlier in Feb which was reason for his joining us. No activity during his tenure with us but when we set up camp one night in the jungle, he broke out a folding stool to sit on and shared small cans of wine with us. He had a small transistor radio with ear piece he plugged in to listen to, not knowing it was also broadcasting loudly. We grabbed it and stomped it to pieces. Good journalist who knew what to self censor and what to publish.
