Today is the 35th Anniversary of the 1983 Beirut barracks bombings. I’ve had the great honor of portraying a Marine who survived the bombing as 2 different characters, Mac Taylor in CSI: NY was a Beirut veteran, and in the upcoming film, Sgt Will Gardner, out in January 2019, I also play a survivor of the bombings. 35 years ago today a suicide bomber from Islamic Jihad detonated a truck bomb on the building serving as a barracks for the 1st Battalion 8th Marines, killing 220 Marines, 18 sailors, and 3 soldiers. Another 128 Americans were wounded in the blast. Today we honor and remember them.
