Shribman: Remember the Pueblo

(Continued)

At the time, the Pueblo incident revived ancient debates about duty and responsibility, about the naval traditions that were tested and defied in this episode, about the burden of giving orders and the difficulty of carrying them out. Today, the Pueblo incident stirs ancient debates about war and remembrance. Sadly, we know plenty about war, but not terribly much about remembrance.

North Shore native and Pulitzer Prize winner David M. Shribman is executive editor of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
