Howard David "Dave" Payne, III
Birth: Nov. 11, 1946
DeKalb County
Georgia, USA
Death: Apr. 27, 1971
Quang Ngai, Vietnam

1LT - 02 - Army - Reserve


Howard David "Dave" Payne III began his tour on November 15, 1970; he was killed in action on April 27, 1971.

His death is listed as "Hostile - Died of wounds, Ground Casualty, Other Explosive Device". His body is listed as recovered.

There is notation that Mr. Payne was from the state of Georgia, and that he was Baptist; he was single at the time of his death.

Mr. Payne was 24 years old.

While tracing the name 'Payne', I came across Dave's information on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall - he is listed on Panel 03W, Line 15 -, and found that he did not have a Find A Grave memorial page. Although I do not think that he is related to my branch of Paynes, I decided to put this page up for him, and I hope that if any of his friends or family members see it, that they will be able to add photographs or information to it. And of course, I am more than happy to transfer it, on request.

"These heroes are dead. They died for liberty - they died for us. They are at rest. They may or may not sleep in the land they made free, under the flag they rendered stainless, under the solemn pines, the sad hemlocks, the tearful willows, and the embracing vines. They sleep beneath the shadows of the clouds, careless alike of sunshine or of storm, each in the windowless Place of Rest. Earth may run red with other wars - they are at peace. In the midst of battle, in the roar of conflict, they found the serenity of death. I have one sentiment for soldiers living and dead: cheers for the living; tears for the dead." ~Robert G. Ingersoll

RIP, Sir.
