In your fine book about the adventures of the Creighton family, you reference an incident when troops from the 1st BN, 12th CAV–the battalion I commanded in Vietnam in ’70-’71–made national news for being filmed smoking pot through a shotgun barrel. I thought you might be interested in what really happened. (pdf)
From this month’s Army magazine. The VC are engaged, reporters are loose in the wire, the reefer is smoked.
