    Description:
    If I recall this event correctly, it was at night near our ambush location. The woman pulled out what appeared to be a ChiCom grenade, pulled the stringed fuse, threw it at us, which didn‘t travel very far.    When she turned to run, the device, with a very short fuse, exploded a short distance from her, and she sustained superficial fragmentation wounds to her back and buttocks area.  She was taken into our custody and we transported her back to our CP located in the middle of Quan Nam Province II.  After attending to her minor wounds, my Kit Carson Scout, Hung Ahn Vui and I(assigned S-2 Scout) along with the Commander of the Vietnamese Regulars, and his second in command conducted field interview and tactical interrogations of the captured woman. She provided a wealth of information concerning alleged security leaks in our S-3 and other sections.  Our H&S S-2 was notified and the next morning, we boarded a helicopter that transported from Quan Nam Province II us to USMC HQ S-2 at Danang.  Upon landing, she  tearfully fell on her knees, kissed my hands and my filthy boots and thanked me for not tossing her out of the helicopter.   I handed her over to a pre-designated prisoner interrogation group in Danang, provided my tactical report and subsequently made my way back to Quan Nam Province II without any further incident that day.
