SIGNIFICANT   DATES 1775 1945 8  Mar.  1965 23  Oct.  1983 Continental  Marines  (now  the Marine Corps) are established. The American flag is raised by Marines  atop  Mount  Suribachi on  Iwo  Jima. Marines   land   at South  Vietnam. A  terrorist  bomb Beirut,   Lebanon, marines. Da   Nang, explodes  in killing  241 Fighting men have been assigned to ships since the time of the Phoenicians, about five centuries before  the  Christian  Era.  The  Greeks  and  Remans followed   this   practice,   and   later   the   British. Eventually, as the United States Navy started to develop, the practice continued with marines also being assigned to ships. Our Marines have played a vital part in our nation’s  history,  especially  in  times  of  armed conflict.  First  called  the  Continental  Marines,  they fought in the American Revolution. Later called the  United  States  Marines,  they  have  fought  in World Wars and armed conflicts throughout the world.  The  United  States  Marine  Corps  has always been in battle when the United States has been engaged in armed conflict and is still ready to   enter   battle   today.   Although   our   ships   no longer pull alongside an enemy vessel to send men over  the  side,  today’s  marine  is  still  required  to be  prepared  for  hand-to-hand  combat. Since  1975,  Marine  combat  forces  have participated  in  several  operations  in  support  of U.S.   national   policy.   On   29   September   1982, following  Israel’s  invasion  of  Lebanon,  the  U.S. Marines  landed  at  Beirut,  Lebanon.  As  part  of a multinational force, the Marine Corps mission was to oversee the evacuation of Palestinians. On 23  October  1983  a  lone  terrorist  drove  an explosive-laden  truck  into  the  headquarters  of Battalion   Landing   Team   (BLT)   1/8   at   Beirut International  Airport  killing  241  marines  and sailors.  More  marines  died  on  that  day  than  on any  other  since  World  War  II. Two  days  later,  on  25  October,  the  Marines landed  on  the  Caribbean  island  of  Grenada.  On this  mission  Marine  forces  were  to  rescue  U.S. students  who  had  become  endangered  when  a communist-led   coup   overthrew   the   Grenadian government. A combined force of Marines, Army Rangers,   and   elements   of   the   82nd   Airborne Division  rescued  662  U.S.  citizens.  They  also 14-1
