Be a part of history as Cunard partners with the Greatest Generation Foundation to pay tribute to the heros of WW2. It will be a unique enrichment program on board the Queen Mary 2 where guests will get to interact with veterens with first hand accounts from Normandy to Pearl Harbor. There were standing ovations at last year's cruise so don't miss an opportunity to hear from the people who "had a rendezvous with destiny." With every reservation, we will make a donation to The Greatest Generation Foundation.

A must visit while in New Orleans is the incredible National WWII Museum. Especially grateful our girls have a sincere interest in experiencing what their great-grandfather always felt compelled to share. And just around the corner is Ugly Dog Saloon & Barbecue (with plenty of TVs for March Madness). That’s a wrap folks... #neworleans#greatestgeneration#barbecue#memories
oday I had the pleasure of meeting with 97 y/o Lieutenant Colonel (Ret.) Wilmer Plate who served in the U.S. Army Air Corps during #WWII as a Bomber Pilot. It was an honor to speak with this #Veteran and learn about his experiences during and after his service. Among many triumphs, he overcame tremendous challenges and brought his B-24 bomber and its crew home 31 times. Although he retired from the U.S. Air Force, he is absolutely a #SoldierForLife. #GreatestGeneration
