Former Marine Ed Ayers of Scranton, Penn., hangs his head and weeps at the Beirut Bombing Memorial in Jacksonville, N.C., on Wednesday, Oct. 23, 2013. Wednesday was the 30th anniversary of a terrorist bombing that killed 241 U.S. service members. Ayers, who did two tours in Lebanon, said the peacekeeping mission there was worth it but, "I wish it was handled differently."
