They Came in Peace | Beirut Memorial - Jacksonville, NC

Just outside of Camp Lejeune in Jacksonville stands a beautiful memorial in honor of the 241 Marines killed in a terrorist attack in Beirut in 1983. You can read some great history and background on the memorial project here- www.lejeune.usmc.mil/visitors/beirut_memorial/, including how the project was first spearheaded by a local middle school.
