I received a newsletter from the U.S.S. Liberty Veteran’s Association. I am not a veteran of the U.S.S. Liberty but, I have been reading their newsletter for years. The first book that I read about this tragic incident was written by James Ennes, if I recall correctly.
James Scott is a journalist and the son of a surviving LIBERTY officer, John Scott. Mr. Scott has incorporated newly declassified information into his book. In June, 1967, the state of Israel attacked an American ship in international waters and killed 34 Americans and wounded 171 others. Autographed copies of this book are available at the USS Liberty bookstore at $25.00 each including freight. You may contact www.usslibertyveterans.org. You may contact Ernie Gallo at 386-446-6855 or Joe Meadows at 361-387-6699 if you wish information regarding a public presentation.
There are no men who have served America who were braver than the men on the LIBERTY. They deserve our respect forever and our appreciation for their service. Sadly, our own government has lied to the American People about this incident. This book is required reading for Americans. Written correspondence may be sent to:
Stan White, Editor; USS LIBERTY NEWSLETTER; 11360 3000 North Avenue; Walnut, IL. 61376.
The title of the new book by Mr. Scott is: ATTACK ON THE LIBERTY: The Untold Story of Israel’s Deadly Assault on a U.S. Spy Ship. I suggest that you make certain that your local library obtains a copy for the new book section.
