Book Launch Exclusive // Jack Carr, James Scott and Survivors of Beirut

September 24 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

$42.00 – $52.00

Join CLS, The Citadel, and Buxton Books for a rare opportunity to welcome renowned co-authors Jack Carr and James Scott, for a special pub-day release of the first book in a new nonfiction series examining Beirut and the devastating terrorist assault that changed the course of world history. Targeted: Beirut authoritatively reveals, for the first time, the full devastating account as researched through the compilation of extensive military records, comprehensive interviews with survivors and access to personal letters, diaries, and photographs. This 1983 barracks attack in Lebanon that killed 241 servicemen was the greatest single-day loss for the US Marine Corps since the Battle of Iwo Jima and continues to have great influence US foreign policy.

We are particularly honored to recognize three Charleston-based survivors, Don Howell, Dr. Jimmy Ware, and Mark Singleton, who will join Jack and James for this special launch and personal reflections of the bravery and heroism witnessed and always remembered.
