Plaque Dedicated to USS Liberty is Specific with Historical FactSalem-News.com
34 U.S. servicemen were killed and 73 wounded by the Israeli military in a horrific attack, with no provocation.
(MANISTEE, Michigan) - The USS Liberty plaque was preliminary dedicated by a small group of veterans at Veterans Memorial Park Manistee, MI on October 10, 2014.
The plaque questions the honesty of the American and Israeli governments and hopes it will inform the public as to what happened the day of the attack.
Especially outstanding is the leadership of the Manistee City council which had the courage to place the plaque in open public display and would not let the wording be softened.
Unlike the executive leadership of the American Legion (which supposedly is an organization for veterans) the city council saw the truth of the dastardly and cowardly attack of the Israelis for what it was.
The plaque is bronze and 20"H x 30"W and prominently displayed at the Veteran Memorial Park with bar codes to guide people to the proper websites.
