24th MAU They Came In Peace: 1983 Marine Barracks Bombing

I was living on Camp Lejeune when this happened with my sister and her husband who was is a Marine. It was like 9/11 on board base. I will never forget, we should never forget.

I remember this event. My brother was a Marine a Camp Legeune. We knew he was headed to Beirut; assigned tot he headquarters. Then the awful news rocked the world. e had heard reports of a Marine killed with our same unique last name...it was days (before computers and cell phones)before we received a call from my brother that they had gotten delayed in route and arrived right after the bombing. We did find out later that the Marine killed was a distant relative.
