The short blurb under the photo on the newspaper clipping reads: "A soldier of the U.S. 1st Infantry Division looks like a creature from another world as he tries on a Viet Cong gas mask made of plastic bag and bandages. Hundreds of these masks were found in enemy supply and base camps in War Zone C by U.S. troops." The clipping is stamped "MAR 30 1967".
