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, Quảng Nam Province in South Vietnam.[2][4] The victims were 135 women, children and elders from the thirty households.[3][5] After the massacre, the ROK Marines bulldozed a shallow grave and buried the victims' bodies en masse.[3]

In December 2000, a memorial for the 135 victims was founded in Hà My village.[6]
