    THE ALLY ATTACK ON THE USS LIBERTY: VETERANS ACCOUNTS

    in US Government

    My guests today are George Sokol (U.S. Navy) and Don Marsh (U.S. Army NG) and we will be discussing the story of the USS Liberty and some upcoming events for the 34 Dead on the USS Liberty and its survivors. Find out more at

    On June 8, 1967, US Navy intelligence ship USS Liberty was suddenly and brutally attacked on the high seas in international waters by the air and naval forces of Israel. The Israeli forces attacked with full knowledge that this was an American ship and lied about it. Survivors have been forbidden for 40 years to tell their story under oath to the American public. The USS Liberty Memorial web site tells their story and is dedicated to the memory of the 34 brave men who died.


    THE ATTACK


    After surveilling USS Liberty for more than nine hours with almost hourly aircraft overflights and radar tracking, the air and naval forces of Israel attacked our ship in international waters without warning. USS Liberty was identified as a US naval ship by Israeli reconnaissance aircraft nine hours before the attack and continuously tracked by Israeli radar and aircraft thereafter. Sailing in international waters at less than five knots, with no offensive armament, our ship was not a military threat to anyone.


    The Israeli forces attacked without warning and without attempting to contact us. Thirty four Americans were killed in the attack and another 174 were wounded.   The ship, a $40-million dollar state-of-the-art signals intelligence platform, was later declared unsalvageable and sold for scrap. Then began one of the largest coverups in American history.

    What is TRUTH? 'The USS Liberty'

    in Culture

    The Israelis attack on the USS Liberty in 1967 is one of the most blatant acts of war ever happening on an American ship especially by a supposedly "friendly" country.   Why did this happen?
    Why does there seem to be a coverup even after all these years?  We will be discussing these issues and play some interesting interviews.

    Military Monday Replay with John D. Gresham & USNI Author Capt. Alfred McLaren

    in History

    It is ofter forgotten that just 60 years ago, man knew more about the surface of the moon than about was under the artic icecap. Then, with the coming of nuclear powered submarines in the late 1950's, the U.S. Navy began to explore and operate under the polar ice pack, and the Cold War took a new and deadly turn. Following his graduation from the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland in 1955, Alfred McLaren took a career path that would make him one of the greatest Arctic explorers of all time. Following a tour aboard USS Greenfish (SS 351), Maclaren moved over to his first nuclear powered submarine, USS Seadragon (SSN 584), and began a career of Arctic exploration that has made him a household name in the field. This culminated in the late 1960s when he was part of the commissioning crew of USS Queenfish (SSN 651), which he later commanded on a landmark under ice survey of the Siberian Continental Shelf. His Arctic explorations, along with many other Cold War missions and patrols, made Capt. McLaren something of a living legend within the " Silent Service," which he remains today.


    To learn more about Capt. McLaren, the submarines that he served on, and his explorations/missions during his years of service on American submarines, join best-selling author, historian, journalist, documentary filmmaker, and radio host John D. Gresham (Greshamj01) for Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on the Writestream Radio Network (@Writestream)) at 1 PM EDT. This week John will be interviewing U.S. Naval Institute Press (@USNIBooks) author and submariner Capt. Alfred McLaren about his submarine career, and his new book, SILENT AND UNSEEN, a memoir of his naval career. So please tun in to hear the interview of a memorable explorer and Cold Warrior.
