Final Mission of LCPL Victor Flores

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 Jr., LCPL Victor Flores, LCPL Verlon Hadley, and PFC James N. Kalil. [Taken from togetherweserved.com]

Remembering An American Hero

Dear LCPL Victor Flores Jr, sir

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

Curt Carter
