The Beirut Memorial is 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.” The 9/11 Memorial includes a beam from the Twin Towers, presented to the first troops to those who invaded Iraq from the police and firefighters of New York. The Beam is located by the Beirut Memorial and Entry Wall to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial at Lejeune Memorial Gardens in Jacksonville. 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 in the Vietnam War.
