AWARDS AND CITATIONS

Silver Star

Awarded for actions during the Vietnam War

The President of the United States of America takes pride in presenting the Silver Star (Posthumously) to Private First Class Jesse A. Mallobox (MCSN: 2297064), United States Marine Corps, for conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity in action while serving as a Field Artillery Batteryman with Battery D, Second Battalion, Twelfth Marines, THIRD Marine Division (Rein.), FMF, in connection with combat operations against the enemy in the Republic of Vietnam. On 13 May 1969, Battery D was occupying a defensive position at Fire Support Base ERSKINE in Quang Tri Province and was preparing for a fire mission when a flash fire started in an artillery emplacement. Reacting instantly, Private First Class Mallobox unhesitatingly rushed toward the blaze in an attempt to extinguish the fire. Alertly observing that the flames were moving rapidly toward the ready pit, which contained several high explosive, artillery rounds, he fearlessly entered the pit and, although fully aware of the dangers involved, quickly began removing the ammunition. While Private First Class Mallobox was resolutely engaged in this task and was attempting to smother the fire, the remaining rounds exploded and he was mortally wounded. By his courage, bold initiative and unwavering devotion to duty, Private First Class Mallobox upheld the highest traditions of the Marine Corps and of the United States Naval Service.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC Jesse Armando Mallobox, 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, Sir

Curt Carter

Still in my memory.

I was on FSB Erskine May 13 1969. What I saw that day is still in my nightmares. Jesse had a chance to get away but stayed to do what he could. The gun I was on was right next to Jesse's. I can still smell it. I'll never live a day when that doesn't invade my thinking. Many of my PTSD issues come from that day and the following couple days.

To his daughter that doesn't know him. Your Father died a Hero. He could have escaped but stayed. I always thought that what he did that day was way beyond any duty.
When I go to The Wall I still shed tears for him. I don't think that's ever going to stop.
