The trip was not'of your choosing. The voyage was paid for by the friends and neighbors who chose you to become a member of the armed forces.  ARer training, you were or- dered to carry your A Bag and your B Bag aboard a Liberty Ship in preparation for the jour- ney to an unknown destination. To a country where little or no English was spoken. You were fed two meals a day, drank de- salinated water, and your pas port was either a rifle or a 45 automatic pistol, the macb-lne guns and cannons of the Liberty Ship, and the US Navy backing up your landing. Afl the extended voyage, and days and days ofnothingbut sky and ocean; sometimes as long as a month, you arrived at your "mystery destination'. During the trip you see flying fish, por- poise and sea gulls. You and the other passengers are always on the lookout for submarines. If you were lucky--none were sight- ed, nor did one see your ship. During the luxurious cruise all passengers were dressed in the popular fashion, the style of the day--olive drab. This style was so well accepted it lasted about four years. If you can look back on these and other experiences, you are one of the fortunate former mem- bers of the armed services dur- ing World War H. Now you can plan to partici- pate in a trip that should bring many of the ond' memories to mind.
