You Ladies are right on target...many guest did make a point to come up and thank my son..many,many,many more ladies approach him when they saw his wings, but his wife held on to his arm closely (VBG)

There were several members of the army onboard who had just return from Iraq from being there over a year and were spending the weekend with their families, that people really went out of their way to say thank you and show their support of the troops..which was very different then from the late Vietnam war days..I give credit to the cruise lines for offering active military discounts so families can cruise together

In light of what happen today, our young people in uniform carry even a greater burden and are in harm's way
