Bring the Cruise Book to Life with this Multimedia Presentation

This CD will Exceed your Expectations.

A great part of Naval history.

You would be purchasing the USS Antares AK 258 cruise book during this time period.  Each page has been placed on a CD for years of enjoyable computer viewing.  The CD comes in a plastic sleeve with a custom label.   Every page has been enhanced and is readable.  Rare cruise books like this sell for a hundred dollars or more when buying the actual hard copy if you can find one for sale.

This would make a great gift for yourself or someone you know who may have served aboard her.  Usually only ONE person in the family has the original book.  The CD makes it possible for other family members to have a copy also. You will not be disappointed we guarantee it.

Some of the items in this book are as follows:

  • Ports of Call: Sicily, Naples, Casablanca and Rome
  • Brief History of the Ship
  • Crew Roster (Name and Rank)
  • Small book but this is what was available for this time period.

Over 22 photos and the ships story told on 35 pages.

Once you view this CD you will know what life was like on this Cargo Ship in 1953.

Additional Bonus:

  • 6 Minute Audio of "Sounds of Boot Camp" in the late 50's early 60's

Personal Comment from "Navyboy63"

If your loved one is still with us, they might consider this to be a priceless gift.  Statistics show that only 25-35% of sailors purchased their own cruise book. Many probably wished they would have.   It's a nice way to show them that you care about their past and appreciate the sacrifice they and many others made for you and the FREEDOM of our country.
