2017 Remembrance Ceremony
Dear Beirut Families, Veterans and Friends,
“A Time For Remembrance” will be held at the Massachusetts Beirut Memorial at Christopher Columbus Park, 100 Atlantic Avenue, Boston, on Sunday, October 15, 2017 at 1:00 P.M. We’ve selected the 15th so that those traveling to Camp Lejeune on Sunday Oct22 can attend.
For the Remembrance, a family member and a veteran will place a wreath at the Memorial. We will then have a moment of silence.
This will be a fitting gesture of remembrance for those who gave the ultimate sacrifice, “… lest they be forgotten”. It is hard to believe that thirty-four years have come and gone, since that fateful day October 23, 1983.
If you cannot attend this brief service on October 15th please feel free to stop by the Memorial at a time that is convenient for you. Your presence there anytime is appreciated, but most especially on that day to honor the memory of our fallen heroes.
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us:
Chris Devlin – 781-326-9010, firstname.lastname@example.org or Chrissie Devlin – 781-888-1507, email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can also find this event on Facebook and invite others.
Please pass this information on to anyone that may not have internet access.
Thank you. God Bless Our Troops
