Ceremonies honor marines killed in Beirut bombing.

Friends and relatives of 15 servicemen killed in the bombing of the Marine headquarters in Beirut gathered Monday in a vast hangar in the third day of ceremonies honoring victims of last month's terrorist attack.

Lt. Comdr. Fred Natkin, a Navy Chaplain who delivered the invocation, said although more than 220 Americans died in the blast, each man must be remembered for his sacrifice.

"We are here for easch one, he said. "We represent each one as we individually and together represent the one God in whom we all believe."

Officials at Dover said each incoming group of casualties will be honored at similar ceremonies.
