My brother, Humberto

(The actual date of his tour of duty began in February 1968. He was declared as Missing in Action on August 22nd, 1968.)

On 22 August 1968, Private First Class Humberto Acosta-Rosario and other members of his unit engaged hostile forces in the vicinity of the Ben Cui Rubber Plantation Area, Grid Coordinates XT462468, Approximately 25 kilometers east of Tay Ninh City and two kilometers west of Dau Tieng, Tay Ninh Province. During the engagement, his unit was forced to withdraw. After withdrawal was completed, Private Acosta-Rosario and another soldier were reported missing. Subsequently, the battle area was retaken and the body of the other soldier was recovered, but Private Acosta-Rosario could not be located. Subsequent information indicates Private Acosta-Rosario was captured during the battle. A captured document dated 25 August 1968, signed by the assistant political officer for the command committee, Doan (possibly Doan 70B also known as the 7th Pavn Division) and addressed to V15 (possibly the 165th Regiment, 7th Pavn Division), reported that the K7, V19 (possibly the 7th Battalion, 32d Regiment) had captured two U.S. prisoners on 23 August 1968.

If anyone knows the whereabouts of the family of PFC/Phillip T. De'Lorenzo Jr. of Randolph Massachusetts, please contact me at this address: Alberto Acosta-Rosario

Remembering Humberto

I have been wearing Humberto's MIA/POW bracelet for over 10 years. My brother gave it to me.My brother was wearing it and I remembered wearing a copper MIA/POW bracelet in grade school. I have done a lot of research about Humberto and was wondering about his family and friends. He was so young. I admire his courage and dedication. If you knew him or have any information about him, I would appreciate hearing from you.
