The Hà My Massacre was a massacre purportedly conducted by the South Korean Marines on 25 February 1968 of unarmed citizens in Hà My village, Dien Duong commune, Điện Bàn District Quảng Nam Province in South Vietnam.

According to South Korean anthropologist Heonik Kwon, it was reportedly conducted in retaliation for Vietcong mortar fire on a ROKA Marine Artillery Battery firebase that killed a South Korean Marine artillery Daewi (Captain), a Sangsa (First Sergeant) and four conscripts. The 4th Battery of the Marine Artillery Regiment, equipped with 3 155mm howitzers and 6 105 mm Guns, was providing forward fire support to the 2nd Parachute Infantry Regiment co located 8 km away. The attack was preceded by two hours of shelling by 155 mm artillery, during which two Alouette II helicopters were circling overhead the village and machine-gunning those that tried to escape. Later Alouette III helicopters and trucks transported almost 200 Marines to the village who killed many more civilians at close quarters.[1]:xiii[1]:2 The victims were 135 women, children and elders from the thirty households.[1]:1[2] After the massacre, the Marines bulldozed a shallow grave and buried the victims' bodies en masse and later used napalm bombs from helicopters in an attempt to destroy any evidence.[1]:1 Kwon states that this assault against the corpses and graves is remembered as the most inhumane aspect of the incident.[3]

The commune later became a hotbed for partisan activity, remaining resistant to Korean forces in the region until they were relegated to guarding bases later that year and until their departure in 1973.[3] The commune would later earn the designation as a Hero District of the People's Armed Forces of the PAVN.

In December 2000, a memorial for the 135 victims was founded in Hà My village.[1]:138
