THE MEMORIAL

Three wreaths now stand as a silent witness to Ceremonies that took
place here two days ago. Their many pedals softly falling to the
pavement, as the breeze slowly moves them across the ground to
destinations unknown. Two days ago this place was filled with memories
of the past, and grief for those two hundred and forty one men lost,
who's names appear on this wall of stone, for the vows been made to
never forget, October 23, 1983 when they perished in a far off land.
A sentry in bronze stands guard between the break in the wall a place
where flowers and other items show up every now and then, just to prove
they have not been forgotten, the Marines of 1/8 Beirut Lebanon, for
THEY CAME IN PEACE.
