Beirut Memorial Observance

Sunday, October 23, 2022

Each year, a Remembrance Observance takes place on October 23 at the Beirut Memorial to remember those who gave the greatest sacrifice for their country. It's a solemn tribute to 273 Marines who gave the last full measure of devotion in Lebanon and Grenada on October 23, 1983. The names of each man are engraved in granite along with the words “They Came In Peace.” Set in a wooded site with beautiful landscaping, the memorial is a fitting tribute to our military men and women who answer the call everyday without regard to personal safety.
