Our October speaker will be Arthur E. Lindberg , LtCmdr, US Navy (Retired).   During his 28 years in the Navy, he received numerous decorations including the Legion of Merit.

His story ends with the swap of the spies for five Soviet dissidents, some of whom play significant roles in current events. Maj. Gen. Oleg Kalugin of the KGB was the senior official on the Soviet side who accepted his offer to sell them secrets.  

As a follow up to Art's 2014 presentation of Operation Lemonade, he will be discussing the unintended consequences of that program 

Art and his wife Pat have both been very active in the Anthem Community since moving here in 2014. Art has served on the SCA Board, and served two years as President of the SCA Veterans Club. He is currently serving on our Board of Directors  and is the producer of Freedom is not Free, for SCA-TV.
