Candlelight Service
Wednesday, October 23, 2013
An early morning memorial service was held today in Jacksonville, N.C. to remember the 241 Americans who died in the 1983 Beirut barracks bombing. Ron and Gary Schucker were in attendance. Gary Schucker is a Clearfield native who now resides in Johnstown, while his dad, Ron, still lives in Clearfield. The photo was sent in by Gary Schucker. Thirty years ago today, a suicide truck-bomber attacked the military barracks in Lebanon's capital that was home to a U.S. peacekeeping force. A U.S. investigation blamed lax security for allowing the terrorist to get into the Marines' compound. The bombing was blamed on the Lebanese Shiite militia Hezbollah, which is backed by Iran.
