Hundreds of Veterans and family members met at the Wall at 0600 on 23 October 2018 to pay tribute to the fallen. The names were read by loved ones and friends and concluded with a moment of silence. Surrounded by the darkness and the glow of the candles loved ones could silently reflect on the sacrifice of their husbands, fathers, sons, brothers, uncles, cousins, and friends.
The candlelight service is an annual event that is always well attended. The reading of the names concludes at 0622 which is when the bombing occurred in Beirut, Lebanon.
