The update to this page began with the submission of photos and a copy of General Orders 10909, 18 September 1969 for
the award of the Silver Star from Donna Mensing to post. The Virtual Wall's database documentation shows "Individual was killed while on
a combat operation when a hostile force was encountered." His records also note SP4 Mensing was WIA during the encounter and died
from his wounds.
Below is the depiction of the Silver Star Award orders for SP4 Stanley A Mensing. Details of the event in which SP4 Mensing made his ultimate sacrifice on the 12th of August 1969 contained in orders. A similar accounting would be used in the Citation that was presented posthumously to the family. Photos, Information, and General Orders provided by Donna Mensing.
Photos below were taken during his tour in Vietnam. His tour started February 26, 1969. Dates and locations unknown.
SP4 Mensing is buried in St. Anthony's Cemetery, Beckmeyer, Illinois.
At the time of his death, he was survived by his parents, Veronica A and Alfred J Mensing. His father, a Sergeant in World War II, passed away in 2001 and his mother in 2005. They are buried in same cemetery.
