I would love to go back and take these photos again. I feel like you never really can appreciate traveling the world on a United States Navy Vessel. I'd jump on the volunteer list for guest trips any day!

That brings me to the important Veteran's that run these ships and everything they do. You can't put a price on sacrificing your life for someone you don't even know. Military families arguably pay the ultimate price considering they hold the family together. You never know what to expect at a family member when your loved one is on duty.

Veteran's Day is only a 24 hour period. That's a small window of gratification and in my opinion, they should pay the minimum for everything. That said, I found some sales that are offered to veteran's and their families. Some of these offers are before, day of, and after.

Thank you again for your service and to your family for sacrificing holidays, birthdays, anniversaries and every other special occasion without you so we can have ours freely.
