Comments: I happened upon this website by chance and thank you for the trip down memory lane. I sailed on the SS Argentina from New York City to Santos, Brazil, in 1959. We moved to Brazil for 3 years because my dad was transferred there. We returned to New York from Santos in 1962 on board the SS Brazil.

Comments: I was with the 518th Medical Clearing Co and we sailed on the USS Argentina leaving USA about 26 Feb 1945 and arrived in Le Havre about 11 March 1945. Part of the time on the Atlantic waves were sweeping over the deck. When we entered the English Channel it was clear as glass.

Comments: Hello! My dad was a Ft Schuyler grad of '44 and sailed for over twenty years with Moore McCormack as a 3rd, 2nd and 1st mate on various cargo ships like the Mooremactide and several voyages on the Argentina. In the early 50's he was on a cargo ship that cracked in half off the coast of Norway. On a ship bound for Africa they were ordered by the Navy to hove into line to blockade Cuba during the Missile crisis. He did the Med, Africa, India and Scandinavian voyages and delivered wheat to Leningrad in the deal with Khruschev...he passed away last year at 88. His name was Thomas Baird Kennedy (1926-2014)

Comments: I was born in Brazil (of American parents) and grew up in Argentina. My family and I used to be passengers on your fine ships sailing from Buenos Aires to New York where we visited family. I believe we also took traveled on Delta Lines (SS Del Mar if memory serves). I have wonderful memories of being at sea as a boy. In fact, after attending the University of Notre Dame I became a Naval Officer and eventually a ship's Captain. I'm sure Moore-McCormack had a lot to do with that career choice.
