The Priest, the Rabbi and the Beirut Terrorist Attack of 1983

Clockwise from left: Rabbi Arnold Resnicoff, a U.S. Navy chaplain, is shown at the scene of the Oct. 23, 1983, Beirut barracks bombing. Rescue and clean-up crews search for casualties after the terrorist attack. Vice President George H.W. Bush tours the site two days after the attack. Also shown: the sign for the Peacekeeping Chapel in Beirut; this portion of the sign survived the attack 40 years ago. It is part of the historical collection at the U.S. Naval Chaplaincy School and Center.
