[Tampa, Florida] On a steamy evening in May, a social justice Methodist Church invited the community to dinner and a presentation intended to ignite a fire in all bellies.
Ernest A. Gallo, Chairman and Liberty Foundation President of the USS liberty Veterans Association, warned the crowd, “My intent is to tell you the truth and if I do a good job, you will leave here tonight with heart burn.
“Some of the Liberty survivors think the Lord wants us to tell this story. My focus is on our government, who abandoned the crew when Israel targeted the USS Liberty and murdered 34 servicemen and injured 174 on June 8, 1967. Ever since, we have been chastised and dishonored by our government.”
