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. 

If you have any questions, please send us an E-mail prior to purchasing.

Check our feedback. Customers who have purchased these CD's have been very pleased with the product.

Thanks for your Interest!
