Marine Barracks in Beirut were bombed on October 23rd. This year marks the 28th anniversary.

When I was a young PFC our Company Gunny was a Beirut vet. God help the soul that didn't now the significance of Oct 28th 1983 if he asked you.

We all almost died during Able Archer.

Grenada.

Barracks Bombing. The absolute low-point of the Reagan Presidency. We should have leveled Hizbullah.
