Thank You

Dear Lcpl David Haveard,
Thank you for your service as a Rifleman. I did the research on you on your 49th anniversary, sad. It is Holy Saturday and Passover. The war was years ago, but we all need to acknowledge the sacrifices of those like you who answered our nation's call. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.

Ground Casualty

LCPL David M. Haveard was a rifleman serving with Combined Action Program 1-3-4, Combined Action Company 1-3, 1st Combined Action Group, Combined Action. LCPL Haveard’s CAP unit 1-3-4 was responsible for protecting the small village of Bin Son in Quang Nam Province, RVN. CAP 1-3-4 had an encampment on a hill about 2 miles from Bin Son where they usually slept during the day and went out on patrols at night. On July 7, 1970, a new Marine to the unit, LCPL Gilberto Garcia, arrived at 1-3-4’s camp. That same evening after the sun went down, Garcia reportedly went berserk while under the influence of drugs and began firing his weapon. He next threw a grenade which fatally injured Haveard and critically injured another Marine when his arm was blown off. The crazed Marine was disarmed and detained and later put on a helicopter for Da Nang. Garcia attempted to jump out of the helicopter while enroute to the Da Nang brig. He was later charged with murder and aggravated assault and upon examination by a psychiatrist, was found to be “dangerously psychotic.” No legal judgment was ever made in the murder case against him as Garcia hanged himself on September 1, 1970, while in pretrial confinement.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear LCPL David Marshall Haveard, sir

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

With respect, Sir

Curt Carter
