The Beirut Memorial was a gift from the citizens of Onslow County to honor those men that lived among us and gave so much.
This small red granite memorial in Waterloo Park was dedicated in 1984 by the Military Order of the World Wars to honor those from Austin killed in conflicts after the Vietnam War.
