Whereas on the morning of October 23, 1983, at approximately 6:20 a.m., a truck 
        packed with explosives broke security and detonated outside of the 
        United States Marine Corps barracks in Beirut, Lebanon;
Whereas 241 members of the Armed Forces of the United States were killed in the 
        blast, and many more were injured;
Whereas a total of 272 members of the Armed Forces from 39 States and Puerto 
        Rico died while serving in Beirut, Lebanon, from 1982 to 1984;
Whereas the members of the Armed Forces were part of a multinational 
        peacekeeping force; and
Whereas the honor and sacrifice of the victims will never be forgotten: Now, 
        therefore, be it
    Resolved, That the House of Representatives, on the 25th anniversary of the 
bombing of the United States Marine Corps barracks in Beirut, Lebanon--
            (1) honors and remembers the service and sacrifice of the members of 
        the Armed Forces who were victims of the bombing and those who died in 
        Beirut from 1982 to 1984; and
            (2) joins family and friends in mourning the members of the Armed
