A great part of naval history.

 (Most Sailors consider the cruise book one of their most valued treasures)

You would be purchasing an exact copy of the USS Hale DD 642 cruise book during the Korean War era.  Each page has been placed on a CD for years of enjoyable computer viewing.  The CD comes in a plastic sleeve with a custom label.   Every page has been enhanced and is readable.  Rare cruise books like this sell for a hundred dollars or more when buying the actual hard copy if you can find one for sale.

This would make a great gift for yourself or someone you know who may have served aboard her.  Usually only ONE person in the family has the original book.  The CD makes it possible for other family members to have a copy also. You will not be disappointed we guarantee it.
