Storyline

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
