From Pete Hamill. Head of Associated Press (Saigon)
I'm writing to request one of our reporters joining Bravo Company 1/501st on their current mission in Boon Tsuk. Eddie Adams is one of our finest photographer and reporter. He is also an ex Marine so can look after himself. We are covering the CORDS initiative and its impact on civilian life. We hope to document the great work our boys are doing in the pacification mission so heralded by General Westmoreland.
Eddie can hitch a lift on the next company airlift.

We will do what we can to accommodate your reporters. Due to his attachment to the 1/501st, I will leave the specifics of the liason to the CO LtC Lewis, though I'd like you to keep my office updated.
LTC Lewis. I trust that you’ll do all you can to accommodate the former leatherneck and show him how the Airborne do things
