Until just a few weeks ago we could see the Navys boat in Majorca from the USA, in Majorca these in the 1960 until the 1970 the navy sailed to Mallorca on the USS Gainard.

Recently I found saved in a box some uniforms and some playboys maganizes that were read by sailors of U.S.S Gainard. My grandmother had saved these like a treasure.

In the 60, Marines left some playboys and some uniforms and some uniforms like a trash on a land near of the airport. There a group of children, that know this, they went there and the picked the clothes and magazines.

It’s curious to observe like at the same time that in Spain a Filmaker create “Wellcome Mrs Marschall” like a satire of the dictatorial Regim of Franco some Sailors who worked on U.S:S gainard gave freedom to this group of children when the body of the woman (pictures of this) were forbidden.
