During a transit from Gitmo to Key West, a frigate of the US Navy encounters a 12-year-old Cuban girl clinging to floating debris; the ship rescues the girl and takes her aboard. While doing so the vessel briefly enters Cuban territorial waters; a small Cuban patrol boat briefly hassles the frigate, then goes elsewhere. The skipper is of Cuban descent, and he hates Castro and his regime. The admiral sends Harm and Bud to lend a hand. The Cuban government, the INS, the US Department of State, and the SecNav enter the action, and Harm makes a quick side trip ashore. Eventually the captain escorts the girl while she steps onto US soil in Key West. Meanwhile Mac and Mic talk more. Written by DocRushing

Did You Know?


The true frigate, FFG-19, representing the fictitious USS Stanley Dace, is a frigate named in honor of Cdr. John Anderson Moore, USN, a submarine officer, who, in World War II, received citations for multiple events of "extraordinary heroism". Moore died in 1945 while serving as the Commanding Officer aboard USS Grayback (SS-208) during its final patrol. No vessel of the US Navy bears the name of Stanley Dace, although there have been two submarines named USS Dace (SS-247 and SSN-607), named for a North American fresh-water fish of the carp family. One real Stanley Dace was a chief boatswain's mate who died during the sinking of USS Underhill (DE-682) in action against the Japanese Navy in 1945. See more »
