Support Our Vets: Sail on Caribbean Princess

You can join them for an extra special four day cruise, but you'll need to book now, as the ship sails on November 5.
The cruise line has paid a LOT of attention to detail on this one, and the plans are quite extensive. Here are just a few highlights:
- A 'Stars and Stripes Sailaway'
- Donations to the Operation Homefront and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund for every cabin booked
- A $50 on board credit for active and retired military
- Guest speakers including a decorated war correspondent, and the man who announced the end of World War II in Europe
- A "red white and blue" formal night (!)
- Veterans History Project assisting with the recording of personal experiences for the Library of Congress
- Special guest list that reads like a military "Who's Who."
There's more. Lots more. I teared up just reading about it, and thinking about the men and women who'll be there.
Visit princess.com/veteranscruise and see for yourself.
If you are able to cruise on short notice, and would like to join in honoring those who've served, do it. You're sure to meet a few real honest to goodness heroes. Just DO IT. I wish I could. It's sure to be a very special few days.
