 Additional Information
What are you doing now:
Debbie and I went to the Med for two weeks July 06. Rome, Naples, Florence, Venice, Lucerne, Paris and London. Let me tell you, those MWR tours are drastically reduced in price for us. We took a bunch of "excursions" (OK, all of them offered to us) and some of them were ones I took as MWR trips.

Zack is going to College here in the Alamo City and I'm finishing up my degree with Saint Leo.
Other Comments:
Give or take. If I made a port visit or spent some time floating off the coast, then I included it. Yes, I included every country in the Med.....6 Med cruises + a couple into the Arabian Sea/Persian Gulf.

Combat History is best as I can recall, going through past evals----->
