I was a trainee journalist undertaking a year long study of the impact of photojournalism during the Vietnam War and it capability to change public opinion when I met Horst. It was 1999 and he became my mentor for the project. His help, support and generosity made my assignment possible. Such a great man, rest in peace.

My condolence to Haas' family. From July of 65 until January of 67, I was a U.S. Navy journalist and interpreter. I served in Saigon in the office that accredited the press corps that covered the war. I knew Haas and many of the photogs of that era. He was a legend even then. When I left Vietnam Horst wrote for me a gracious and complimentary letter of recommendation in case I wanted to continue in the field of photo-journalism. I treasure it to this day. As well as the memory of spending one night with Haas in a foxhole.

My condolences! Although I never met Mr. Fass, I was aware of him as a legendary man through my late father who worked with him for many years at the Associated Press.

Only good words were spoken of him!

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.

Horst was not only a remarkable photojournalist but courageous and caring for his fellow photographers. When my closest friend AP and Boston Globe photographer, Oliver Noonan Jr. was shot down in a command helicopter close to Danang, the Americal Division mutinied for days rather than retrieve the bodies of Ollie and the many US colonels that died in that crash. Despite the intense fighting Horst and Peter Arnett made it to the crash site and recovered Ollie's camera and final roll of film which he brought back to Ollie's father, Oliver Noonan, another well known and highly regarded Boston photographer who was a father to me and taught me my craft. Thank you Horst for everything, your legend and life work will stand as will our memories.
