Press photo dated 19 July 1958 with caption that reads: “Some Lebanese civilians saw an opportunity to cash in on the arrival of United States troops and set up a fruit stand on a beach near Beirut. One of the marines of the third contingent to be landed paused to make a purchase.” Note– The Marines landed in Khaldeh just south of Beirut near where the airport runway lies today.
