What are you doing now:
Writing, reading, photographing, helping tell the story of the Israeli attack on USS Liberty that killed 34 of my shipmates and destroyed the ship.
Doing everything within my power to preserve and honor the memory of my 34 shipmates who were killed by Israeli forces in the June 8, 1967, attack on USS Liberty.
Working to thwart the efforts of a group of extremists who seek to pervert the effort of USS Liberty survivors to tell our story honestly and widely. Distancing ourselves from racists and antiSemites is an ongoing and never ending task.
