October 23, 1983; Beirut Remembered

by Steve Foley
Friday, October 23rd 2009

My Marine recruiter, Sgt. Bruce, was stationed in Beirut when this all went down. It’s my honor to remember not only his sacrifice but the sacrifice of his friends and every Marine who gave the ultimate sacrifice that day!!!

On October 23, 2009, thousands will stop to remember the 241 Marines, sailors and soldiers who died in the Marine barracks bombing in Beirut, Lebanon, 26 years ago on October 23, 1983. It was one of America’s first blows of terrorism.
