Never Surrender, Never Forget: 1983 Beirut Barracks Bombing

On this day in 1983 suicide bombers drove truck bombs into compounds housing US and French military personnel stationed in Lebanon as part of a peacekeeping mission. 241 Americans, 58 French and 6 Lebanese civilians were killed.

Those responsible? Islamic terrorists associated the the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) and Hezbollah backed by Syria and Iran…

Never surrender, never forget…

Our prayers for those lost on that day and for those who lost someone that day…

God Bless
