Trans World Airlines Flight 847 was a flight from Cairo to San Diego with en route stops in Athens, Rome, Boston, and Los Angeles. On the morning of Friday, June 14, 1985 Flight 847 was hijacked by members of Hezbollah and Islamic Jihad shortly after take off from Athens. The hijackers were seeking the release of 700 Shiite Muslims from Israeli custody.
The passengers and crew endured a three-day intercontinental ordeal. Some passengerds were threatened and some beaten. Passengers with Jewish-sounding names were moved apart from the others. United States Navy diver Robert Stethem was killed, and his body was thrown onto the tarmac. Dozens of passengers were held hostage over the next two weeks until released by their captors after some of their demands were met. [from Wikipedia]
The Navy Diver Foundation started the process of petitioning the Secretary of the Navy to award the Prisoner of War Medal to all six Navy Divers that were held hostage for 17 days during the TWA flight 847 in 1985. EA1(DV) Stuart L.J. Dahl, CE1(DV) Tony D. Watson, EO1(DV) Jeffrey J. Ingalls, SW2(DV) Kenneth M. Bowen, and CE2(DV) Clinton Suggs, and SW2(DV) Robert D. Stethem, the one who was murdered. After all these years the Secretary of the Navy has approved the awarding of this medal. The Navy Diver Foundation with your help is trying to raise funds to help with travel expenses and ceremony/reception expenses for this event. A ceremony to present the Prisoner of War Medal to these men will be held in late April 2015 in Washington, DC. The Navy Diver Foundation is a 501 3 (c) Non Profit Organization.
