Michael Sallah is a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist whose powerful presentations on soldiers in war have captivated audiences across the country.

Sallah was the lead reporter in 2003 who uncovered one of the great military secrets of the last century: the Tiger Force case — the story of an elite platoon that dangerously spun out of control in Vietnam in 1967, slaughtering hundreds of civilians. The case was substantiated by the military in the longest war crimes case of the Vietnam conflict, but later buried by the Pentagon. Sallah and his colleagues received the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for Investigative Reporting for exposing the events. He recently co-authored the book, Tiger Force: A True Story of Men and War, which has been hailed by literary critics as one of the most important books ever written about the Vietnam War.

During his career, Sallah has received numerous state and national awards for his investigative stories on topics ranging from white-collar crime and clerical sex abuse to terrorism. Now investigations editor for The Miami Herald, Sallah has interviewed hundreds of veterans from World War II, Korea, Vietnam, and Iraq to explore one of the most fascinating and least understood aspects of war: why soldiers lose control.

Sallah will speak on MGC’s Cochran campus on Monday, April 9, in Russell Hall. The event is free and open to the public.
