The 2nd Battalion 4th Marines made a Helicopter assault the morning of 5 March in which several helicopters were shot down by Hostile 50 cal. machine guns. They then proceeded on a search and destroy mission. The company was engaged in operations against insurgent communist forces in the vicinity of An Tuyet, Quang Ngai Province, when Corporal Stoudt’s platoon came under extremely heavy small-arms and automatic weapons fire from Viet Cong forces entrenched on a commanding ridgeline. Numerous casualties were inflicted on the platoon and many fell in areas exposed to annihilating fire. LCpl. Bianchini was killed by hostile small arms fire on 5 March 1966 and was awarded his second Purple Heart.
