FTR #8 Interview with Colonel Dan Marvin

Lis­ten now: Side 1 | Side 2

A mem­ber of the Asso­ci­a­tion of Nation­al Secu­ri­ty Alum­ni, retired Spe­cial Forces Colonel Dan Mar­vin describes expe­ri­ences on the “covert side” dur­ing the course of his career in the Green Berets. Most of the first side of the inter­view con­cerns Col. Mar­v­in’s knowl­edge con­cern­ing the alleged sui­cide of Lt. Com­man­der William Bruce Pitzer, who filmed Pres­i­dent Kennedy’s autop­sy and had pho­to­graph­ic infor­ma­tion dam­ag­ing to the offi­cial analy­sis. Told that Pitzer was a trai­tor about to sell secrets “to the ene­my,” Col. Mar­vin was req­ui­si­tioned to kill Pitzer, but refused to do so because the killing was to take place in Bethes­da Naval Hos­pi­tal. While watch­ing a doc­u­men­tary about Pres­i­dent Kennedy’s assas­si­na­tion, the name of Com­man­der Pitzer came up as one of a num­ber of peo­ple who died sus­pi­cious­ly and, in many cas­es, vio­lent­ly. This led Mar­vin into an ongo­ing quest into the con­tin­ued harass­ment of Pitzer’s wid­ow, an offi­cial mil­i­tary coverup and con­gres­sion­al stonewalling of the inves­ti­ga­tion. The sec­ond half of the inter­view con­cerns Col. Mar­v­in’s expe­ri­ences in Viet­nam. Assigned to assas­si­nate Crown Prince Nord­hom Sihanouk of Cam­bo­dia, Mar­vin refused and, after being brand­ed a “rene­gade Green Beret,” was almost “ter­mi­nat­ed” (along with his com­mand) by an elite South Viet­namese reg­i­ment. (Record­ed Octo­ber 4, 1996.)
