A Day Without a Woman and the USS LIBERTY

A Day Without a Woman and the USS LIBERTY
Share this Story:

Wednesday’s Day Without a Woman strike is spotlighting women’s economic power and contributions to society in paid and unpaid labor.

On this Day Without a Woman, this American woman labors in love for the USS LIBERTY

By Eileen Fleming

On the first women’s day in 1909, 15,000 women marched through the streets of New York demanding improved pay, shorter hours and voting rights.

Organizers of January’s Women’s March and March 8’s A Day Without a Woman Strike have encouraged women to not work today, no matter if their job is paid or unpaid.

As a fulltime volunteer Health Reporter and Senior Non-Arab Correspondent to NOT write requires more energy than writing; because writing is a labor of love and the pay off is being read.

In solidarity with A Day Without A Woman, I am wearing red because the color red represents “revolutionary love and sacrifice” and that leads me to the USS LIBERTY:

NOT because it was a Day Without a Woman on the USS LIBERTY, but because June 8 1967 is a Day in Infamy which continues to drive today’s USA foreign policies.

On the day before A Day Without a Woman, this female USS Liberty supporter living in Florida posted certified letter to Senators Bill Nelson and Marco Rubio’s Orlando office which follow:

March 6, 2017

Dear Senators Nelson and Rubio,

As your constituent and because I am a USS Liberty supporter, I attended Representative Dennis Ross’s town hall meeting seeking his assistance in honoring USS Liberty Veterans.

I had hoped Rep. Ross would have encouraged President Trump to issue an Executive Order establishing USS Liberty Remembrance Day but instead he referred me to the both of you.

Enclosed please find:

1. Your invitation to the June 8th USS Liberty Veterans memorial service at Arlington Cemetery from Ernest Gallo, the President of the USS Liberty Veterans Association.

2. A USS Liberty Petition to Congress

3. The December 2016 letter by Gallo mailed to 12 Florida colleges with ROTC programs. One returned unopened and no interest has yet been expressed from any of Florida’s universities of higher learning. Sad, very sad!

Your response -or your silence- regarding the USS LIBERTY Veterans and the 50 years of USA Government Cover-up will be noted online when this American files reports from Virginia regarding the 50th USS Liberty Reunion.

Most sincerely, Eileen Fleming…


 Ernest Gallo, President of the USS LIBERTY Veterans Association wrote to Senator Nelson and Senator Rubio:

You are cordially invited to attend the USS Liberty Veterans Association (LVA) memorial service. The USS Liberty is the most decorated Navy ship for a single engagement.

Every year at noon on June 8th at Arlington Cemetery, Section 34, Grave Site 1817, we have a memorial service for 34 brave Americans (31 Sailors, 2 Marines, and 1 NSA civilian) who were killed in action on June 8, 1967, on the high seas in international waters of the Mediterranean. Since Thursday, June 8, 2017 will be our 50th anniversary memorial, we are planning a solemn appropriator affair honoring these men who gave their lives for America and Intelligence efforts of the time.

Your attendance will be deeply appreciated and welcomed.   Unless you have an Arlington Cemetery pass to drive to our site, please plan on parking in the customer lot and proceed to the Welcome Center at 11:00 AM for security screening. At 11:30 AM, the LVA will provide a bus to transport our memorial group to our site and return. The service should last about one hour.

Sincerely Yours,

Ernest A. Gallo

Ernest A. Gallo, President, USS Liberty Veterans Association

We must never forget the Holocaust, however, it is equally important for the future of the United States to never forget the USS Liberty.


Come senators, congressmen

Please heed the call

Don’t stand in the doorway

Don’t block up the hall

For he that gets hurt

Will be he who has stalled

There’s the battle outside raging

It’ll soon shake your windows and rattle your walls

For the times they are a-changing


Thank you if you sign and share this USS LIBERTY Petition to Congress
