Beirut bombing memorial Tuesday

Before Sept. 11, there was Oct. 23.



Tuesday, Onslow County will pause to pay tribute to the more than 200 Marines, sailors and soldiers who died when a Hezbollah terrorist drove a truck filled with explosives into the Marine barracks in Beirut, Lebanon.

The ceremony begins at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday at the Beirut Memorial and will include military music, guest speakers and hundreds gathered to honor their family, fellow service members or simply fellow Americans. In addition to those who died in the bombing, the ceremony will honor all who served in Lebanon from 1958 to 1984 and in Grenada.

The Oct. 23, 1983, suicide bombing was the largest non-nuclear explosion and the most fatal terrorist act against Americans up to that time.

Richard Ray, vice president of the Beirut Veterans of America, said the organization's first duty "is to remember."

"There are a lot of people across the country right now who are completely unaware of it," he said. "There are Marines in the Corps today who don't know anything about it."

The event is a chance for families and victims to grieve the loss of their friends and fellow Marines, and for others to pay tribute to those who served, he said.

Maj. Gen. Robert Dickerson, commanding general of Marine Corps Installations East, will be the guest speaker, Ray said.

Parking is available at the Coastal Carolina State Veterans Cemetery, across the street from the memorial.

The Marine Corps League will lay a wreath at the Beirut Marker at Camp Geiger at 2 p.m. Tuesday. For more information about the ceremony, or about the Beirut Veterans of America, visit www.beirutveterans.org.

We might not be in the WTO today if Reagan had dealt with the Muzzies then.

I’ve been down to the memorial and it is a very moving place.

It certainly is a moving place. It is at the first portal wherein many Marines enter, after MCT.

My brother’s name could well have been on that wall but for the hand of God.

But the way I look at it, all of the names on that wall are all my brothers.

I believe my son said they brought them to the memorial either before or during SOI.

I was in 3rd Bn, 4th Marines at the time.

The unit that got hit was regimental headquarters company, 8th marines. Good reminder, although this was not a terrorist attack - 8th marines was a legitimate military target.

Terrorism, by definition, is when civilians unrelated to a war effort are attacked. The world trade center was terrorism. The pentagon (though staffed largely with civilians) was a hard military target.

This is an important distinction.

What unit were you in in 82 Rev?

I had a friend that was fapped out over there from Elmaco at Lejeune. He missed being hit, but ignominiously broke his legs falling out of a six by. C’est la vie.
