Ok, so I guess some people are under the impression that Beirut is a "war time period". It is worded or classified as a "Conflict". If you go to the Veterans website and look up eligible war time periods, Beirut is NOT listed because it is only considered a "Conflict". To me, conflict and war should be the same thing as we lost men/women either way. To classify something as a "conflict" and make veterans of that period ineligible for certain benefits is disrespectful to those veterans.
