USS Liberty

Was anyone on the USS Liberty over Christmas 1966 down the West African Coast?

Can you recall what caused the free for all, and can you recall what our payback was towards your guys that night? 😁 I was a 16 year old crew member on the Obuasi at that time. I know what caused the fight to start. Thought your guys were great. I can recall a tall guy from Texas sharing some cookies with us that his Mother had made. We were invited onboard the Liberty, and I was amazed to see that you had coke machines on there. One of your guys showed us where he stored his gear, by by lifting up his bunk, with the storage area being under it.
