My recollection of these Chu Hoi (sic) surrenders was that information tended to be about recent enemy or equipment locations, but not necessarily current. We passed the info up to battalion and they decided whether we would act or it. I recognised our Kit Carson scout. He helped us out oten, but had a habit of disappearing for a day or two to visit home. Best wishes, Mike Neuman" Michael. J.
