Beirut Memorial Observance
October 23 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am
October 23, 2023 marks 40 years since the Peace Mission to Beirut Lebanon The Beirut Memorial was a gift from the citizens of Onslow County to honor those men that lived among us and gave so much. 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, this is a fitting tribute to our military men and women who answer the call everyday without regard to personal safety. Each year, a Remembrance Observance takes place of October 23 at the Beirut Memorial to remember those who gave the greatest sacrifice for their country.
