October 23rd, 1983,

So long ago/Only yesterday... This is the way many of us look at it. To all of my fallen brothers, as you already know, I will always include you in my prayers. And to those of us who were blessed to be able to make it home, be strong. God has more he wants us to do with our lives. Let’s make it something positive.

Semper Fidelis

Before I left the Navy in 1986, I visited the base psychiatrist expressing my concerns over my mental health. I was told that studies were conducted on the survivors of the bombing in Dresden Germany in WW 2 and no negative effects were found.Was told to get back to work. It took me years to get treatment for PTSD. In the interim my life fell apart.

Thank each and every one of you for your service. I was stationed onboard the USS PHARRIS off the coast a mile or so on this date as a very young E3. 31 years later I remember that morning better than anything else in my life. Today I still feel helpless not able to reach shore to help. RIP to the brothers that lost thier lives and comfort those that were there. Very Respectfully, R. Cote, USN, Command Master Chief, Retired

Semper Fi to all my Marine Brothers and Sisters,

I was a Lance Corporal in Beruit during the bombing of the embassy in April of 83. We lost 17 Americans in that blast. I stayed in the barracks while on mess duty and often went there for administrative needs. I was in the artillery unit (I Btry 3/10), that overlooked the airport. I ran the airport for PT almost every day. I remember the patrols through the city and the occasional attacks we faced. But in Oct, I lost friends in the bombing of the barracks. The reason I am leaving this message is because I ran into a Marine last Friday that was in Beruit during the bombing of the barracks, the 24th MEU. Those that were there at that time relieved me as I was in the 23rd MEU. It was a great time to reminiss with a fellow Marine about those times as most civilians will never understand. God Bless our troops today in the face of battle for terrorism. Semper Fi, 1st Sgt David Bryson.
