Roger was the husband of Joyce L. Meyer, the loving father of Roger J. Meyer of Huntington Beach, the son of Margaret Meyer, dear stepson of Raymond C. Meyer of Santa Ana California and the son of Lee Inscore; he enlisted in the US Marine Corps on February 23, 1966 in Los Angeles. In Vietnam he was assigned to and served with Company M, 3d Battalion, 5th Marines, 1st MARDIV (Rein) FMF.

Silver Star Citation ..

"The President of the United States takes pride in presenting the Silver Star Medal (Posthumously) to Roger V. Inscore (2234781), Corporal, U.S. Marine Corps, for conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity while serving as a Machine-Gun Squad Leader with the First Platoon, Company M, Third Battalion, Fifth Marines, FIRST Marine Division, during Operation UNION II, near La Nga, Quang Tin Province, Republic of Vietnam on 26 May 1967. Corporal Inscore's platoon was assigned the mission of seizing a tree line in order to alleviate the pressure on Company L's position and assist in evacuating casualties. When the assault encountered enemy mortar, small arms and automatic weapons fire, Corporal Inscore immediately deployed his guns forward into action, directing vicious suppressive fire on the enemy positions. With complete disregard for the intense enemy fire, he moved from gun to gun, pointing out targets, correcting the fire and shouting encouragement. Corporal Inscore's aggressive enthusiasm was spontaneously captured by the entire platoon. The pinned-down units unhesitatingly commenced moving by fire team rushes to overrun the objective. Observing that a Marine had fallen mortally wounded in an exposed area, Corporal Inscore, first ensuring that his guns were on target, moved forward through the concentrated mortar and sniper fire to the wounded Marine's side and skillfully applied first aid in a futile attempt to save the wounded man's life. As he rejoined his squad and ordered them up to the now captured objective, he was struck and mortally wounded by an enemy sniper round. Corporal Inscore's inspiring bravery and professional skill became the major factors in the rapid accomplishment of the platoon's mission and were in keeping with the highest traditions of the Marine Corps and the United States Naval Service. He gallantly gave his life for his country."
