  • Landed in Chu-Lai on you Birthday

    Mo, I still remember the day on Chu-Lai Beach when we landed on your Birthday in 1965. I took a picture of you laying on your cot telling the rest of us not to worry that we were all going to be fine. I was sent TAD to DanNang to serve in the 1st Air Defense Battalion, and lost track of my 1st. Platoon Bravo company buddies. I know the Platoon became Alpha Company 4th platoon as soon as I left Chu-lai. Had I not been sent TDY I would have been there with you, as my tractor was in the Supply Column. (B17) now A47. Rest in peace my friend.
    51 years later you are not forgotten. It seems like it was yesterday May18, 2016 that we landed on that beach. We were told we were suppose to be there for two weeks when we were being briefed on the landing.
  • Thank You

    Even though you have passed on, people here will still remember you as a war hero. I am very thankful for what you have done to protect our country and I know that it was hard for you. Thank you for sacrificing your life for our great country. Thank you Corporal Rowland Joseph Adamoli for fighting 3 years in Vietnam.

    On August 18, 1965, elements of the 3rd and 4th Marines made simultaneous amphibious and airborne assaults in an area about 10 miles south of Chu Lai. The purpose of OPERATION STARLITE was to cut off and destroy the 1st VC Regiment (60th Bn, 80th Bn, 52nd VC Co, and a Weapons Company). The landings met only light resistance but heavy fighting broke out as the Marines deployed from the LZs. During the fighting, a resupply convoy from A Company, 1st AMTRACS, came under intense enemy mortar, recoilless rifle, and small-arms fire. Of the 23 Marines assigned to the convoy, six were killed including the officer in command, 2LT Robert F. Cochran (Navy Cross), and several others wounded. When the convoy was relieved, 60 enemy bodies were found on the battlefield. The five other men from Alpha Company, 1st AMTRACS, who died in the fighting were CPL Rowland J. Adamoli, LCPL John Bell, LCPL Victor Flores, LCPL Verlon Hadley, and PFC James N. Kalil. [Taken from]
