35 years ago our worlds were turned upside down. Things would never be as they once were. Husbands, fathers, sons, brothers, uncles, cousins, and friends were lost. Scars were formed that could never heal. The young men that returned home were not the same men that deployed. The Beirut Veterans of America Organization is charged with ensuring the world never forgets. The week of the 23rd we did just that.
Veterans, Gold Star Families, and friends came together to honor our fallen heroes, to support one another, and to reminisce about the “good ol’ days”. Through tears and laughter, the already strong bond that holds us together grew even stronger.
