“Erasing The Liberty” Presentation & Book Signing This Thursday

Authors Phil Tourney and David Gahary will be holding a presentation and book signing for their book Erasing The Liberty on Thursday, September 14th starting at 5:00 pm at the Fraternal Order of Eagles, 88 North E Street in Green River.


On June 8, 1967, the USS Liberty was attacked by aircraft and torpedo boats, killing 34 sailors and Marines, and wounding 174 servicemen. Heavy damage was incurred as thousands of rounds of armor piercing bullets, hundreds of rockets, napalm and one torpedo strike penetrated the ship’s superstructure. The ship miraculously did not sink, due to the valiant efforts of the captain and crew.

Phil Tourney, eye witness survivor and highly decorated recipient of the Bronze Star, Purple Heart and other unit citations, accompanied by freelance writer and co-author David Gahary, will tell the haunting historical account of arguably the most decorated naval vessel in U.S. history.

WWB Bud Light

The presentation and book signing are free and open to the public. For more information or to purchase a book, contact David Gahary at 850-667-0344.

  1. We Americans and the USS LIBERTY is a grassroots organization who offer a few excerpts from the just released DVD “We Americans and the USS LIBERTY”

    USS Liberty Commander David Ed Lewis speaks about LBJ’s cover-up:

    USS Liberty Marine Sgt. Bryce Lockwood who spearheaded the passing of American Legion Resolution 40 at their National Convention in Reno, Nevada, August 22, 23, 24, 2017, which concludes, “The American Legion calls upon the 115th United States Congress to publicly, impartially, and thoroughly investigate the attack on the USS Liberty and its aftermath and to commence its investigation before the end of 2017, the 50th anniversary year of the attack.”

    Vice President of USS LIBERTY Veterans Association Larry Bowen speaks about 50 yrs. Post Traumatic Stress:

  2. It is surprising how little the American public seems to want to hear this truth. There is not a one of the surviving crew, who hasn’t experienced some traumatic things in their lives for just trying to tell the truth. One of my payments was the alienation of my family. It has taken a lot of years for me to come to the conclusion that most really don’t care, and the ones that do, have experienced their own traumatic loss in their lives. Maybe I should have had that attitude for the last fifty years. At least I might not be a stranger in my own families home. Running a fund for the LVA has shown me the same answer as I wrote here. It is in my mind that dumbing down of America, and that effort has certainly worked well for those that want to destroy this nation. What if we hadn’t stood up for the truth over the last fifty years? I guess the results are the same aren’t they? If your government won’t listen, the main stream media won’t listen and even pastors in your own church won’t listen, then again the results are the same. Cover up, and it worked well for them.
