Veterans Get Together at the Pub

Recommended Posts

I always look forward to the Veterans get together on our cruise.  No reason we can't have one here.  Share your information and let's swap stories.  Steve Hintz, US Navy 1972-1981 and I served on submarines.  Spent most of my sea duty out of Pearl Harbor.

Not me but DH 

 

USMC 1988-1992.  Machine gunner and Mar-Det on the New Jersey, also serving on the Denver and Pelelieu.  Served in Desert Storm, Desert Saber, and Desert Shield.  

 

Got him to cruise by suggesting a ship can also be “fun”.  

 

What are these veteran get togethers of which you speak?

Every ship that I've been on has a veteran's get together as some point during the cruise. It's in the daily announcements. I've always enjoyed them.
