30 Year Anniversary of the Beirut Bombings


Thirty years ago on October 23rd in Beirut, Lebanon 241 US Troops were killed when suicide bombers drove trucks loaded with explostives into the Marine Barracks. 

Read a first hand account of that day here titled The Worst Part For Me Is That Nobody Remembers.  http://bangordailynews.com/2013/10/22/news/bangor/the-worst-part-for-me-is-that-nobody-remembers-retired-carmel-marine-recalls-1983-beirut-bombings/

Remember... Their Sacrafice. Our Freedom.

I know it was 30 years ago. My only excuse is I've been working for the government too long and have started using "Federal Math." Thank you for pointing out my error. I've corrected it.
