Thanks to our friends at Aerocinema: The Aviation Channel, we’re pleased to present a brand new 18 minute interview with Admiral James L. Holloway III, USN (Ret). The former CNO and Naval Historical Foundation Chairman Emeritus spoke at length about Operation Lion’s Den, a 1972 raid by four U.S. Navy warships into Haiphong Harbor to shell enemy shore positions during the Vietnam War. Admiral Holloway was along as Commander, Seventh Fleet, and had a front row seat for the dramatic events that unfolded.
As you may know, we’re currently deep into the planning stages for a new exhibit at the Cold War Gallery based on Operation Lion’s Den. If you’d like to learn more about the exhibit, or make a donation to support its construction, we invite you to read our earlier announcement. Completion of the exhibit is planned by summer 2012 at the Cold War Gallery, part of the National Navy Museum at the Washington Navy Yard, Washington, DC. Alternately, you can make a donation on our Fundly page.
