.Operation STARLITE began in the early morning hours of August 18 with Company I landing on GREEN Beach with a search and destroy mission towards the west and the hamlet of An Cuong (2) in the Binh Son District of Quang Ngai Province. Approaching the hamlet the Marines began receiving heavy fire from an entrenched enemy force; supporting arms and reinforcement were called in as the battle to clear the enemy from their defensive positions continued throughout the day. By the end of the day when the fire fights subsided, the Marines had cleared the enemy consolidating their positions and their casualties were evacuated. The Company had lost thirteen men killed in action, the Commanding Officer Capt. Webb, and LCpl Delmark was one of the many men lost, killed as a result of multiple shrapnel wounds.
