On this, the 40th Anniversary year, the Capital Area Golf Tournament will honor the memory of the 220 Marines of 1st Battalion/8th Marines that lost their lives on 23 October 1983 when a suicide truck bomber attacked the U.S. Marine Barracks in Beirut, Lebanon.

The bravery and sacrifice of the Marines from the 1/8 in the face of this terrorist attack should never be forgotten. They exemplified the highest ideals of service, honor, and dedication to their mission. The loss suffered by the battalion and their families serves as a stark reminder of the risks and sacrifices made by military personnel around the world.

This year’s Capital Area Tournament will be held on September 25, 2023 at the Army Navy Country Club.

Registration for golf is now open. Please don’t hesitate to contact Col Scott “Boy” Arnold, USMC (Ret) at [email protected] with any questions or concerns.
