Milo John Radulovich (October 28, 1926 – November 19, 2007) was an American reserve Air Force lieutenant who was accused of being a security risk for maintaining a "close and continuing relationship" with his father and sister, in violation of Air Force regulation 35-62 as his family members were accused of Communist sympathies.
His case was publicized nationally by Edward Murrow on October 20, 1953, on Murrow's program, See It Now: That [Air Force regulation 35-62] is a regulation which states that 'A man may be regarded as a security risk if he has close and continuing associations with communists or people believed to have communist sympathies.' Lieutenant Radulovich was asked to resign in August.
He declined.A board was called and heard his case.At the end, it was recommended that he be severed from the Air Force., although it was also stated that there was no question whatever as to the lieutenant's loyalty. — Edward R.
