Philadelphia Beirut Memorial
Originally located at Penn’s Landing, the Philadelphia Beirut Memorial was dedicated in 1985 in honor of the Philadelphia Marine casualties of the Beirut Peace-Keeping Mission of 1983. It was designed by Douglas Corsini, and its inscription reads, “If you forget my death then I died in vain.” Today the memorial sits at Front and Spruce Streets.
