ABSTRACT
The article discusses the 1965 Camarioca Boatlift, in which Cuban President Fidel Castro allowed Cubans to leave the country from Camarioca, Cuba, and the U.S. Coast Guard had to rescue refugees in unseaworthy vessels. Topics discussed include the Coast Guard's law enforcement, search and rescue, and observation operations, and the U.S. failure to draw lessons from the experience before the larger Mariel Boatlift of 1980.
