My father, Sydney Eustace Jordan, sailed as Chief Engineer on the s/s MooreMack Mar and I think also on the MooreMack sea and the Tide, in the 50's and 60's. The ship would dock in San Francisco, where we lived. Many years later in my line of work I boarded one of these ships, from the mothball fleet, renamed and in service during the Gulf war, carrying cargo to the Middle East from Port Chicago. I was happy to know that at least one was still in service.

I grew up in Pascagoula,MS where the SS Argentina and Brazil were built. I was born in May of 1957. My father was a maintance carpenter at the shipyard. He was in charge of building and decorating the stages where the dignataries were seated. Thanks for having this sight to remind me that my father had a big part of this historic company.

My parents and I were passengers on the Mormacdale in August of 1957. I was 11 years old at the time. It was a wonderful voyage from Santana, Brazil to New York. The Captain and crew were so nice to us, and I will always have fond memories of that trip.

When I first met Juan, we were fierce adversaries. Commercially competitive, there was never malice between us. Later, we found ground for common interest and we turned into close friends. With a heavy heart I learned of Juan's passing. He was an idol for me.

My father departed Camp Shank, New York and boarded the SS Brazil on May 15, 1943 and sailed to Noumea, Espiritu Santo, New Hebrides as a member of the all black 922nd Air Base Security Battalion, arriving on June 13, 1943. It was fascinating to view the SS Brazil that is a part of my family's history.

I stumbled upon this web site while researching the name on one of my Zippo Lighters that I collect- which is the same one that is on this site. But what I want to say is that I couldnt get enough when reading all the history on this company and the men and women whom worked and served.Very interesting reads.very interesting people.makes me wish I were there!
