Remembrance of those in Beirut

Attached please find a picture of the monument erected/constructed by the Military Order of the Devil Dogs, a subsidiary of the Marine Corps League.

A few of the members of the Devil Dogs, were wondering what we could do as to the remembrance of those that had fallen in the disaster in Beruit, and started a collection in which we could have families of some of the victims flown in to the base to be here with their members. We got in a little more than expected so they decided to construct this monument at Camp Geiger which was the home of the 8th Marine Regt. The three members that activated this were Dale Hack, William R. Reichstein, and Robert V. Flowers, all of whom are now deceased.
