Mike Collie Left New York July 1963 on the SS United States arriving in La Havre, France. Took a train to Frankfurt, Germany by way of Paris, France. In 1966 we left Frankfurt, Germany by train to La Havre, France and boarded the SS United States to return to New York. The SS America was docked next to SS United States in New York in 1963, as I remember correctly. On the return trip to the United States in 1966, we skirted a hurricane, pretty rough sea.
