 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
SSGT Harry F. Carver was assigned to Company E, 15th Engineer Battalion, 9th Infantry Division in Vietnam.

On April 10, 1968, Carver was a member of an airboat patrol operating about 35 kilometers southeast of Saigon in Bien Hoa Province, Republic of Vietnam.

At about 1330 hours that day, an enemy force ambushed the airboat with rocket propelled grenades and small arms fire, wounding several men, including Carver. Several other members of the patrol reported that Carter was wounded, was bleeding profusely, and was slumped over in the driver's seat of the airboat when the craft capsized and Carter disappeared.

Ground, air and water searches were conducted in an attempt to recover Carter, but to no avail. Area villagers and officials were later questioned, but no additional information was learned about Carver's fate.

SSGT Carver was classified Killed in action, body not recovered. He is listed with honor among nearly 2500 Americans who remain unaccounted for in Southeast Asia because his remains were never found.
