06-09-06 - Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient Captain William L. McGonagle, US Navy Although severely wounded during the first air attack, Capt. McGonagle remained at his battle station on the badly damaged bridge and, with full knowledge of the seriousness of his wounds, subordinated his own welfare to the safety and survival of his command. Steadfastly refusing any treatment which would take him away from his post, he calmly continued to exercise firm command of his ship. Despite continuous exposure to fire, he maneuvered his ship, directed its defense, supervised the control of flooding and fire, and saw to the care of the casualties. Capt. McGonagle's extraordinary valor under these conditions inspired the surviving members of the Liberty's crew, many of them seriously wounded, to heroic efforts to overcome the battle damage and keep the ship afloat. Israel underestimated our guys. For it is their sheer heroism that prevented Israel from sinking that ship - which is what Israeli forces clearly sought to do. McGonagle and all those on board the USS Liberty : heroes.
