What was the name of that story about the explosives expert? I believe it was written by Joe Haldeman>?

It took place in Viet Nam. (I think.) The guy blew down trees to create landing zones for helicopters, then blew himself up the day before he was to go home. I believe it was a precurser to Joe Haldeman's later "Forever War" series. What collection can I find it in? If it was by someone else, who? And where?
