We will always remember.

Hi Rusty. Another Memorial Day is coming to a close. It's hard to believe that its been 57 years since I was an Altar Boy at your Funeral. I remembered you and all who made the supreme sacrifice in a very special way today. You and all who served are not and will never be forgotten. Continue to Rest in Peace my Mt. Carmel friend.

Never Forgotten!

To this day, a tear still comes as we hear tributes, and my mind brings me back to the days on 23rd Street and OLMC School in Astoria! You will always be remembered!

Final Mission of SP4 Russell L. Filiberti

Between June 8-27, 1967, Third Platoon, 919th Engineer Company, participated in search and destroy operations in support of Third Squadron, 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment, which took place in the jungles around Blackhorse Base Camp in Phouc Tuy Province, RVN. During the early morning hours of June 19, 1967, Third Platoon, while helping to secure the Command Post of the Third Squadron, came under an intense mortar and ground attack. The strike came from an estimated Viet Cong battalion. Due to their position on the perimeter, the Third Platoon bore the brunt of the ground assault. The "Red Devils” valiantly defended their ground, employing every weapon in their possession. When the smoke lifted and a search was conducted in the morning, over thirty-five enemy bodies were found in front of the Platoon’s position. During the action, SP5 William N. Scott and SP4 William J. Dillon were killed while returning intensive fire on the fanatical attackers. Both Engineers Scott and Dillon were posthumously awarded the Bronze Star medal for valor during the battle. Eight Blackhorse troopers from K Troop, 3/11, were also lost in the engagement. They included SP4 Raymond D. Crowder Jr., PFC Edward L. Fails Jr., SP4 Russell L. Filiberti, SP4 Blaine W. Landers, PFC Bobby L. Murphy, PFC Charles H. Richards Jr., SSG Wayne T. Schumacher, and PFC Leonard V. Tedesco. The Blackhorse troopers all fought bravely, and each received a Bronze Star medal for valor.
