Statement by Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel on the 30th Anniversary of the U.S. Marine Barracks Bombing in Beirut, Wednesday, October 23, 2013

Washington, DC–(ENEWSPF)–October 23, 2013.

Today we remember the 241 U.S. service members who were killed 30 years ago in the attacks by Hezbollah against the U.S. Marine compound in Beirut. It was a deadly and tragic day for the Marines, the Department of Defense, and the United States of America — one that will never be forgotten.

The United States will always honor the sacrifice of those fallen service members, whose mission was to bring peace and security to Lebanon. As we reflect on the legacy of that terrible day, we strengthen our resolve to support the people of Lebanon, and we give thanks for the many sacrifices our military, development and diplomatic personnel are making across the globe to protect Americans and promote our values and interests.
