30th Anniversary of the Beirut bombing is 23 October.
"Bodies, and pieces of bodies, were everywhere. Screams of those injured or trapped were barely audible at first, as our minds struggled to grapple with the reality before us: a massive, four-story building reduced to a pile of rubble; dust, mixing with smoke and fire, obscuring the view of the little that was left."
Rabbi Arnold E. Resnicoff, Navy Chaplain
23 October 1983 is etched into the memory of a whole generation of Marines. It started off as an ordinary morning for the Marines stationed as peacekeepers in Beirut. But that all quickly changed. At about 0622, a truck filled with explosives drove into the building where the 1st Battalion 8th Marines had set up their barracks. Seconds later, the suicide bomber detonated explosives equivalent to 12,000 pounds of TNT, collapsing the building and crushing the people inside.
The Beirut Barracks bombing was the deadliest single day for our Marine Corps since Iwo Jima, and the deadliest single day for our Nations's military since the first day of the Tet Offensive in Vietnam. And many consider it to mark the beginning of the modern Global War on Terror.
Major Nelson was the initial SAR aircraft commander on that very sad day. He was deployed on his third Mediterranean cruise and flew helicopters supporting multinational operations.
