Lebanese war 6-day series - Day #1


April 13, 2005 is the 30th anniversary of the start of the Lebanese war. I was looking at the large war photo collection in my possession, and I thought I might do something with it. So I decided I would do a 6-day photo series.

USS New Jersey fires a salvo from her 16"/50 guns during a deployment off the coast of Beirut, Lebanon, 9 Jan. 1984

"They did not make war. They were simply victims of war, in the honorable attempt to keep the peace. The gift of these men was of the ultimate quality and we know that it was of such value that it cannot be given again." - The Beirut Memorial Online

Also take a look at the plaque.

I wonder what, for example, the USS New Jersey firing salvo at the Chouf villages had anything to do with Americans' freedom.
