Remembering the Beirut Bombing

Security Television Network (

As I learn today about a “Huge explosion rocks Beirut, injuring thousands across Lebanese capital,” it reminds me of an earlier explosion, which took the lives of many U.S. Marines and Sailors with 2nd Marine Division in 1983.

Some of these marines were in my senior class while I attended boot camp at MCRD Parris Island, 3rd Batallion “I” company. This video is a reflection on the service members who passed away during the barracks bombing in Beirut, Lebanon at Camp Lejeune, N.C.

We need to learn from history, and not let it repeat itself.
