Source: Compiled from one or more of the following: raw data from

U.S. Government agency sources, correspondence with POW/MIA families,  published sources, interviews. Updated by the P.O.W. NETWORK in 1998. SYNOPSIS: Huberto Acosta-Rosario was born January 15, 1947.His home at the time he was lost was Mayaguez, Puerto Rico. On August 22, 1968, PFC Acosta-Rosario was serving as a machine gunner on a reconnaissance enforce operation when his unit came underheavy attack by North Vietnamese Regulars and were forced to withdraw. They were in the area of Ben Cui rubber plantation, Tay Ninh Province, near Highway 4 in Tactical Zone III. The Unit had established blocking positions in the vicinity when they came under attack. During the withdrawal, Acosta-Rosario became separated from the rest of his unit. After regrouping, it was determined that PFC Acosta-Rosario and another machine gunner, Philip T. De Lorenzo, Jr, were missing from their platoons. After artillery and helicopters had passed suppressive fire into the area, Company B moved back into its original position. In the hours that followed, extensive searches were conducted by B Company.  De Lorenzo's body was located and extracted, and both men's M-60 machine guns were found. fresh graves in the area were investigated, but no further U.S. remains were found. There was no other trace of Acosta-Rosario. Two subsequent intelligence reports received and analyzed by the U.S.Government indicate that Acosta-Rosario was captured in this operation, although the Vietnamese continue to deny knowledge of him or his fate. Huberto Acosta-Rosario was last seen wearing a t-shirt, jungle fatigue pants, a steel pot and a gold Seiko watch. If he is one of the several hundred Americans that evidence indicates are live, he has spent all of his adult life in captivity. His family would like to know if he is dead or if he is alive.
