I was with him when he was hit.
From a comrade-in-arms,
I can confirm that Daryl Culver was a medic with the 1/7 Cav. I was the medical operations assistant with the 1st Bn, 7th Cav of the 1st Air Cavalry Division at the time. Before Daryl died he was visited by CPT Robert Tortolani, our Battalion Surgeon, on the naval hospital ship. He was a good chief medic, his death was a tragedy.

Notes from The Virtual WallThe casualty database incorrectly identifies SP4 Culver as MOS 11B20 - an infantryman. However, Major Marsh confirms that
"He was head medic for D company 1/7 CAV 3 Bde 1st CAV Division. I was talking with him about medical matters just before he got hit. I was attached to the company as the artillery forward observer."
