LONG TIME FORGOTTEN...
IP: 72.222.137.3


.......passed by the wayside...Over the
years since this terrible incident I have personally experienced "I DIDN'T
KNOW THAT....SO MANY MARINES ALL AT ONE
TIME"! Another of those early, 'mid-east' area disasters those responsible for were never held accountable....

On Oct. 23, 1983, a suicide truck-bombing at Beirut International Airport in Lebanon killed 220 U.S. Marines, 18 sailors and 3 Army soldiers; a near-simultaneous attack on French forces killed 58 paratroopers.

I have been told that some of those
navy personnel were Seabees...perhaps there is verification of that statistic?JW
