Lara M. Sabanosh: Lara M. Sabanosh is the author of Caged, the first-hand account of the story that captivated headlines all around the world in 2015. From the Today Show, NBC News, small town newspapers, to Al Jazeera, everyone told a version of the events that led to the dismissal of Naval Station Guantanamo Bay’s Commanding Officer Captain J.R. Nettleton, the civilian employee, death of Christopher Tur, and the exile of Lara Tur (Sabanosh) and her daughters. Lara has kept silent regarding her never-before-told other side of the international headline story until now. Lara was the director from Fleet and Family Services at GTMO, has since retired from her government roles, and now spends her time in Pensacola, Florida with family.
