Antikeri gets tug assist

The ship now called the Antikeri has been here 8 times since 1996. It was last here in September of this year loading grain. In 2003, it loaded bagged dried peas from Idaho, the first Food for Peace shipment out of Duluth in 12 years. The peas went to Mauritania, a country on the West Coast of Africa. Food for Peace is a long time but seldom discussed part of our foreign policy. In previous visits, the ship visited as the LT Argosy and the Millennium Hawk.
