USS FRANK E. EVANS SAILORS TAKE TO THE SEA ONCE AGAIN
Carnival cruse lines enjoyed the high spirited group from the USS Frank E Evans on a cruse from Jacksonville Florida to Key West and Nassau in February this year. The idea was launched by Pete Peters in late 2006. Why not try a cruise and see what it is like to not stand watch, trice up you rack, or sweep the ship down forward and aft. Basically why not go on a cruise where you’re on liberty 24 hours a day.
The trip was originally offered as a tin can sailors cruise then turned into a Veterans cruise. By far the USS Frank E. Evans was the single most represented military organization on the cruise. We had the opportunity to tell “Our Story” to a lot of interested parties. Who knows maybe one of them will make the right contact at the right time and action will take place to get the names on the Vietnam Wall.
