Dave Taft was also a pretty good psychiatrist. I met him in May 1967 when I transferred from being a line Corpsman to 1st Medical Battalion. My mind was bruised with guilt for feeling I had not done enough to save my wounded fellow Marines. The ICU / Recovery room we ran there put us in hourly contact with Dr Taft. He taught me that most of the wounded men I had cared for would not have survived even if there been surgeons right there. He then taught me a lot of surgery by having me neuter every stray dog & cat west of Danang !
He was my hero. I went back to college & medical school courtesy of the Navy. David Taft healed my mind and gave me the blueprint for my life. I retired from the Navy Medical Corps with 27 years service. A final post was as an Attending Physician to the 99th & 100th Congress.
Dr David Taft gave me my life back.
I am still an active physician at age 75 in Alabama. Semper Fi , Dr Taft .
Rest In Peace

Uncle Dave is sorely missed. What a wonderful guy. A great boss at the Group Surgeon's Office at 1st Force Service Support Group. Learned so much and had fun. All my love to his family

I served with Dr. Taft at the 1ST FSSG, Camp Pendleton. Dr. Taft was a great surgeon, outstanding physician, and expert historian on the civil war. I was in Vietnam near the same time as Dave, we shared many stories. Dave, may the wind always be at your back, farewell shipmate.

David was a lovely person who so cared for his patients and was a force to be reckoned with the nurses caring for his patients. I knew him for 5 years and the respect I had for him will always be there. It was about the patient first, that was a given. I'm sad for that loss, I can only hope the family has carried on and are thriving.
