The Beirut Memorial

The Beirut Memorial occupies a wooded site between Camp Lejeune and Jacksonville, North Carolina. It carries the names of those killed in the attack, those who died from their wounds and those who were killed in other attacks in Beirut - 270 names.

Survivors words are haunting:

"It was the First Battle of World War Three," -Bob Jordan
"We began to take terrorism seriously," - Chaplain Danny Wheeler

It really IS a chilling reminder that we have been in a GLOBAL war on terror for a very long time..

May they ALL rest in peace..
