I too am a Beirut Vet

in response to reader comment: Never forget the murdered Beirut Marines!

I was Navy, served onboard the USS portland LSD-37 and on the morning of Ocotber 23rd I was sent in to recover my Brothers. I will never forget that they were murdered while they slept, a true act of cowardice and one that went unpunished.

I have always felt that if one man was murdered in this country the outcry would be to find the one responsible. We know who is responsible and we have yet to go after them and bring them to justice. Stand up and demand that these murdering cowards are brought before US court and given a fair trial.
