Family of Heroes

According to the book titled " The Book of Honor " authored by Ted Gut , one of Davids older brothers, Ivan Berl King flew for the CIA in Laos and was later killed in a secretive plane crash July 13, 1978 in North Carolina. The crash was covered up by the special forces and the CIA.
Apparently he was a highly skilled, dedicated and respected pilot for Air America who coincidentally flew the final flight out of Laos as the CIA operation had come to an end.

David G King

I served under you for 4 months and during that time you became my best friend and hero. On February 20, 1969 we were ambushed and our platoon was told to check out the area. Our squad was chosen to go first. As the squad leader of our platoon you felt the point men did not have enough experience to walk point. Over my objection, you walk point and you got shot. I was the machine gunner and I tried from the bottom of my heart to save you. I could not. I hope to see you in heaven.
