California Military Academy

Ed and I were among the graduates in1967 from the California Army National Guard Military Academy and became 2nd Lieutenants. Since our last names were alphabetically close, we were bunkmates at Camp San Luis Obispo. Ed was a terrific soldier and a great friend. We only saw each other a few times before he went to Vietnam. I still miss him.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear 1LT Isaac Edward Heath, 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, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

Curt Carter

Silver Star Citation

Silver Star



Awarded posthumously for actions during the Vietnam War



The President of the United States of America, authorized by Act of Congress July 9, 1918 (amended by an act of July 25, 1963), takes pride in presenting the Silver Star (Posthumously) to First Lieutenant (Armor) Edward Isaac Heath (ASN: 0-2335523), United States Army, for gallantry in action while engaged in military operations involving conflict with an armed hostile force on 18 March 1969 while serving as a platoon leader with Troop L, 3rd Squadron, 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment, in the Republic of Vietnam. ON this date while Lieutenant Heath's platoon was conducting a reconnaissance mission it made contact with a well-fortified enemy fore. As the hostile rocket propelled grenade and automatic weapons fire increased he organized his armored element into a line formation and coordinated an aggressive assault against the hostile positions. Disregarding his own safety Lieutenant Heath directed his command vehicle to lead the attack. When his driver was wounded seriously, Lieutenant Heath assumed physical control of the vehicle and continued leading the advance. As the platoon closed in on the enemy fortifications he was mortally wounded by small arms fire. His personal example of aggressive and inspiring leadership enabled his platoon to successfully accomplish its mission. First Lieutenant Heath's courage and unwavering devotion to duty were in keeping with the highest traditions of the military service and reflect great credit upon himself, his unit and the United States Army.
