Report from George – Aboard the Shirley Lykes – Exchanging Cargo for Precious Human Refugees in Havana

George – Age 70’s. Birthplace – Baton Rouge, Louisiana, U.S.; Residence –– Daytona Beach, FL; Occupation – Merchant Seaman for the Lykes Company, now retired.


Recently, I wrote you about my recollections of the trip to Havana on the Shirley Lykes ship, and our bringing 1,000 Cuban refugees back to Port Everglades. I posted a few photos from my video.

I am delivering a number of photos, of more people entering the ship, on the ship, and then exiting the ship. If readers recognize themselves or anybody, let us know at
