Modesto’s Ron Grantski was a cryptographer on the super-secret spy ship that was attacked by Israeli planes and torpedo boats in the Mediterranean Sea during the Six Days War of 1967.

But you’ll have a tough time convincing Grantski and others who survived the attack that it wasn’t intentional and an attempt to bring the U.S. into the war.
