Very nice ceremony , its hard to believe that was 31 years ago just missed that deployment . Two of my friends from the Rugby team survived the bombing, it took them quite some time before they could talk about it . Very sad day for the Marine Corps and America .

Very hard to attend each year even though I did not know anyone personally at the time. Since have become friends with several survivors. I was in college at the time and came home afterwards and the shock and sadness was just overwhelming in the community but we rallied and raised the money to build the memorial and planted a Bradford pear tree for each of our heroes that died as a result of the bombing. For the community around Camp Lejeune, the war on terror started on that day.
