I've been on a binge converting old 16mm movie films to video. The latest is something I've had for years, but had never watched until now. An admiral being interviewed can be boring, but this particular admiral was the Commdander In Chief of the US Pacific Forces: the theatre commander for the Vietnam War. I've read a lot about this admiral but never heard him speak so it was quite interesting to hear him speaking about the ongoing war. I couldn't find anything similar online so far.
Admiral US Grant Sharp has been called "the most famous Admiral you never heard of." He was commander of US Naval Forces in the Pacific and then became the commander in chief of all US forces in the Pacific, including those in Vietnam. You've heard of General Westmoreland: Sharp was his boss.
After retirement Sharp became an outspoken critic of the air war in Vietnam. Ironically this 16mm film - an ABC News production - is about the bombing of North Vietnam and US aircraft losses.
Again, this may well be the only extensive TV interview with Admiral Sharp while he was still on active duty.
