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!
