On October 28, 1962, 10,000 Marines of the 5th Marine Expeditionary Brigade left Camp Pendleton by sea en route for the Caribbean during the Cuban Missile Crisis.
A week prior, the entire Marine Corps had been put on alert, and elements of the 1st and 2d Marine Divisions were sent to Guantanamo Bay to reinforce the U.S. Naval Base.
