GOLDSBORO BROKEN ARROW:
The true story of a nuclear disaster narrowly diverted
Nearly fifty years before the 2009 Academy Award winning film, “The Hurt Locker,” there was the actual 1961 Goldsboro Broken Arrow. Described in the 2011 book of the same name, it tells about then 1st Lt. Jack B. ReVelle’s leadership as an Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) officer in the de-arming and recovery of two thermonuclear (Hydrogen) bombs that were accidently dropped over Goldsboro, North Carolina in 1961. Jack will describe for us the eight days he and his 10-man team spent locating and recovering one of the two weapons that buried itself in a tobacco field and swamp. Early last year, Jack was featured on a segment entitled “Lost Nuke” that aired on the National Geographic Channel’s “The Strange Truth.” No Charge. Guests are welcome.
