September 19 1962 / A Cuban worker leaps ashore from a ferry boat that brings the regular morning force of workers to Guantanamo Bay Naval Base. Each morning the ferry hauls Cuban workers from a nearby town to the US base. In the background are US ships. Fidel Castro's militia units have stopped Cuban cars and commercial buses from transporting Cuban workers into the base at Guantanamo. The Navy has been sending its own buses to the base's main gate to pick up the workers.
