Beirut Anniversary Memorial Ceremony

October 19, 2015 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

The Beirut Anniversary Memorial Ceremony will commemorate the 32nd anniversary of Beirut and to honor the Del Mar Country Club for their support of veterans and veteran service organizations, including the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation

After the bombing of the Marine Barracks in Beirut in 1983, which killed 250 service members, 220 of them Marines, the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation took unique action. We provided 102 treasury notes certificates of $10,000 each – valued at a total of nearly $1,500,000 today – to each child who lost their parent (all services) in the bombing. Each year on the anniversary we honor our Beirut Marines and those families we supported three decades ago.
