FROM USS liberty veterans association WEBSITE :
JUNE 8, 1967, while patrolling in international waters in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea, USS Liberty (AGTR-5) was savagely attacked without warning or justification by air and naval forces of the state of Israel. Of a crew of 294 officers and men (including three civilians), the ship suffered thirty-four (34) killed in action and one hundred seventy-three (173) wounded in action. The ship itself, a Forty Million ($40,000,000) Dollar state of the art signals intelligence (SIGINT) platform, was so badly damaged that it never sailed on an operational mission again and was sold in 1970 for $101,666.66 as scrap.

    The attack on the USS Liberty is horrific in so many ways. Not only because of the men who were killed and injured, or the fact that the U.S. conspired with Israel, or the fact that this ship was totally destroyed, but because the majority of Americans, even to this day, are NOT aware that it happened. Thank you, Chuck, for having Joan Mellen on to discuss it. Hopefully these Interviews and the book will bring attention to, and acknowledgement of, this tragic event. I have pre-ordered the book, and look forward to future shows with this very special lady…
