Jim Morrison came from a military family. His father was a career U.S. Navy officer and a graduate of the Naval Academy. Admiral G.S. Morrison was one of the youngest Navy officers ever selected to become a Rear Admiral at the age of 47-years-old. Then a young Ensign, Admiral Morrison was stationed at Pearl Harbor, and was an eyewitness to the attack on Dec. 7, 1941. He flew fighter aircraft in the South Pacific during the last year of WW II and again during the Korean War.
Jim Morrison and his family were frequently moving during the late 1940's through the 1960's to new assignments his father was ordered to report to. While Jim Morrison was in college at UCLA film school, his father was leading a battle carrier group off the coast of South Vietnam in 1964.

Jim Morrison graduated from film school at UCLA in 1965 and he and Ray Manzarek formed The Doors in June of that year. The Vietnam war was escalating and there was a particular event that many Americans may still not have heard of yet but Admiral Morrison was very vocal about. That is an intelligence gathering ship, the U.S.S. Liberty which was stationed in the Mediterranean Sea near the Sinai Peninsula during the Six day War between Israel and Egypt when it was attacked by Israeli fighter jets on June 8, 1967 killing 34 and wounding 171 crewmembers.
Unlike John McCain's father, Admiral McCain, who perpetuated the cover-up of Israel's attack on the USS Liberty, Jim Morrison's father, Admiral Morrison, was apparently very public about declaring the attack intentional, a false-flag stunt by Israel to trick the United States into war against Egypt. As Morrison became more famous, he became a threat to Israel's continuance of the USS Liberty deception. Like John Lennon, Morrison's popularity with young people became a serious threat to the ongoing war plans.
