Awards for Beirut Raiders

Four officers and enlisted men, who participated in the April 9 raid on Beirut in which leaders of a terrorist organization were killed and one of their headquarters demolished, received medals of valor and exemplary conduct today from Chief of Staff David Elazar. The four–whose names were not released since they are still in active service–took part in the assault and subsequent capture and demolition of the Democratic Front Organization headquarters in Beirut.
