USS Stark attack

It's been nearly 30 years since the attack on the USS Stark and 37 sailors losing their lives, one of which was my brother. I'm looking for any and all information about that attack.

I too was in the Navy at that time and I know there is always more to the story. I want to write a book about the survivors and what they did to save the ship. It's past time for their story to be told and bring this attack out from under the rug that our government has swept it under.

If anyone knows anyone or has anything of importance, no matter how small it may be, I would greatly appreciate letting me know. There is always someone out there that has more information than they're sharing or maybe they think it's of little importance. Or they have access and clearance to see what has been hidden away for all these years.

Any help would be greatly appreciated especially since trying to piece together this story after 30 years has passed will be a monumental task in itself.

Thank you.

Janna, if John doesn't have anything in his archives about that incident now, I'm sure this would be something he would do a FOIA request about. With so many things like military reunions of units that served together, you may be able to search for any such things connected with the ship. Might connect you directly with those who served on the ship, or those who were on it during this incident.

Hi Janna,

I think I can help go after documents. What kind of material were you looking for?

You may wish to search the National Security Internet Archive for relevant information.  You may not find anything, but they seem to have a little of everything in there.
