Zephyrhills AMVETS Post 550 Members Spotted On Southern Caribbean Cruise

Members of AMVETS Post 550 in Zephyrhills

My wife Jenny and I were celebrating our 20th Anniversary on a Southern Caribbean cruise on the beautiful Norwegian Dawn. We spent nine days in Samana, Tortola, Antigua, Barbados and St Kitts and enjoyed 80 degree weather. While sitting around the pool we discovered several members of the newly re-located AMVETS Post 550 on the same cruise as well as several people from Zephyrhills and Dade City. So instead of a private escape for just the two of us, we had the time of our life with these wonderful friends. Thanks for the memories!!!!!
