No one has mentioned it, so..
I'd like to offer my prayers and remembrances of the 241 US Marines, Navy sailors and Army soldiers who perished 25 years ago in Beirut.
Along with one nice innocent Lebanese man who ran the tiny little store in the BLT 1/8 HQ.
58 French paratroopers died in a near simultaneous car bomb attack on their compound, and Lebanese woman and four children were also killed.
We were there on a mission of peace, helping anyone no matter what their religious affiliation, and we were viciously and cowardly attacked.
Only a wrenched knee kept me about 200 feet away from the blast that morning, or there would be one more casualty.
I'd also like to thank our British and Italian members of the Multinational Force in Lebanon for their assistance in the recovery of injured and deceased at the BLT 1/8 site.
