Vlogger Looking for People Who Have Families Who Sailed on Two Ships – YouTube Video

I saw this in a Facebook group that’s no longer accepting new members so I thought I would share it here: Sailing the ss america summer of 1961: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KVBPLkWxoWU (about 3:41 minutes long).

Here’s what she posted on Facebook:

Hi …My father was from Berlin, Germany . The wall had just gone up in 1961 in Berlin. He lived in West Berlin, his job he was supposed to start after training ( after the wall went up ) was in the East… so he decied to come to the USA join the USAF and come back for my mom once he had money to do so.. I am trying to collect stories and photos from others from those

who sailed
who had friends who sailed
or had family who have pass on

on these two ships … so we never forget …i find it so fascinating.. how did your family come to the USA

Dad in July of 1961
Mom in July 1966

The video she mentions is the YouTube video I linked above. If you or your family has or knows anybody who sailed during the above times, please let her know in the comments section on her YouTube video. If you prefer, I can post a response in the Facebook group.
