    Our curators will be displaying related artifacts from our collection and the USMC History Division, Special Collections will be displaying original maps, photographs, documentation, and personal papers during the event.

    Also, in our Legacy Walk Gallery, visitors can view our new 35th Anniversary-Beirut/Grenada temporary exhibit that details information about the Marines’ involvement in both actions.
