The database page for Dale Harry Haver
I don't know if this will count as totally personal, maybe not. But I went to the Wall last year looking to see if someone in my family gave his life in Vietnam. I found Dale Haver. I came home and looked to see if he was in some way related to me because we have the same last name. I never found out for sure whether we are or not but I felt some sort of connection with him and I'd like to see him honored where everyone can read about him. If there's anyone who knows anything about Dale Haver please post it here. All I know is that he died when his helicopter crashed and the other man that was killed in action with him was Raymond Michael Winfrey.
Dear Haver Family,
I was closer to Ray Winfrey Than Lt. Haver. Ray was a Sp5 and I was a Sp4. Ray was writing letters to my sister Wendy in Boynton Beach, Florida. Ray and I were both crew chiefs on OH-6A Scouts.
When we heard that Ray was killed we couldn't believe it! We just couldn't believe it! We were all hoping and praying that Lt. Haver would pull through.
This is really difficult to remember the details of that day in 1969. I remember we were all in a fog mentally, a very bad day!
From a friend,
A Note from The Virtual WallVery little is known about the loss of OH-6A tail number 67-16586, other than it went down in the Michelin Plantation about 11 kilometers north-east of Dau Tieng, Binh Duong Province, on 09 Apr 1969 while on a reconnaissance mission. One crewman, SP5 Raymond M. Winfrey of Redondo Beach, California, was killed in the crash; the other two crewmen were injured. The pilot, 1LT Dale H. Haver, died of his injuries two days later, on 11 April.
