The Beirut Memorial was a gift from the citizens of Onslow County to honor those men that lived among us and gave so much. A solemn tribute to 273 Marines who gave the last full measure of devotion in Lebanon and Grenada on October 23, 1983. The names of each man are engraved in granite along with the words “They Came In Peace.” Set in a wooded site with beautiful landscaping, this is a fitting tribute to our military men and women who answer the call everyday without regard to personal safety. Here also is the 9/11 World Trade Center Beam. The Vietnam Memorial is one of the largest Vietnam Memorials in the nation and one of the only few that list all the names of the fallen. The glass walls that encompass the central fountain are inscribed with the names of the 58,229 men and women who lost their lives int he Vietnam War.
