I visited South Africa in late fall of 1994. I was on the USS HALYBURTON. Our ship and another were the first U.S. Navy ships to visit in 30 some years. I distinctly remember being approached on the street by a South African Citizen who told us how happy he was to see us and thanked us profusely for “staying away during Apartheid”. Really impacted me.
I was reminded of this as I considered Nelson Mandela’s legacy to the nation of South Africa.
