I sailed upon the Queen Frederica from Greece to New York in the Spring of 1963, I recently found the ship's news paper (teletype dated March 29th, 1963) indicating President Kennedy's announcements on the Cuba Crisis and Casto's plans to purchase War Planes and the Soviet Union pulling out of the Caribbean by the thousands...What a fabulous time we had then and the memorabilia I saved has brought back many memories of that journey.
