Final Mission of 2LT David J. Cavis

On February 22, 1968, A Company, 1st Battalion, 16th Infantry, 1st Infantry Division, was conducting a search and destroy mission out of Di An in and around Phu Loi, Thuc Duc and Lai Thieu in Binh Duong Province, RVN. During the operation, A Company made contact with the enemy on several occasions. Near Di An, the company became engaged in a firefight with Viet Cong insurgents which resulted in five members of A Company being killed and three others wounded. Twelve Viet Cong were killed in the encounter. The lost Americans included CPT Loyd M. Wilson, 1LT Edward L. Worthington, 2LT David J. Cavis, SGT Theodore Coaxum, and SP4 Kendall H. Clark.
