1956 Cruise Book 

 (RARE FIND)

Bring the Cruise Book to Life with this Multimedia Presentation

This CD will Exceed your Expectations

A great part of Naval history.

You would be purchasing the USS Franklin D Roosevelt CVA 42 cruise book during this time period.  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.

  • Divisional Group Photos with Name and Rank 
  • Some Ports of Call: Puget Sound, San Francisco, San Diego, Panama, Chile, Cape Horn, brazil, Mayport, Guantanamo Bay Cuba, Haiti.
  • Ports of Call with Arrival and Departure Dates
  • Equator Crossing ceremonies
  • Flight Operations
  • Ships Officer Roster August 1956 
  • Many Shipboard Crew Activity Photos
  • Plus Much More                

Over 265 Photos on Approximately 153 Pages.

Once you view this book you will know what life was like on this Aircraft Carrier during this time period.

Additional Bonus:

  • Several Additional Images of the USS Franklin D Roosevelt CVCA 42(National Archives)

Personal Comment from "Navyboy63"

     The cruise book CD is a great inexpensive way of preserving historical family heritage for yourself, children or grand children especially if you or a loved one has served aboard the ship.  It is a way to get connected with the past especially if you no longer have the human connection. 

If your loved one is still with us, they might consider this to be a priceless gift. Statistics show that only 25-35% of sailors purchased their own cruise book. Many probably wished they would have.   It's a nice way to show them that you care about their past and appreciate the sacrifice they and many others made for you and the FREEDOM of our country. Would also be great for school research projects or just self interest in World War II documentation. 

     We never knew what life was like for a sailor in World War II until we started taking an interest in these great books.  We found pictures which we never knew existed of a relative who served on the USS Essex CV 9 during World War II.  He passed away at a very young age and we never got a chance to hear many of his stories.  Somehow by viewing his cruise book which we never saw until recently has reconnected the family with his legacy and Naval heritage.  Even if we did not find the pictures in the cruise book it was a great way to see what life was like for him.  We now consider these to be family treasures.  His children, grand children and great grand children can always be connected to him in some small way which they can be proud of.  This is what motivates and drives us to do the research and development of these great cruise books.  I hope you can experience the same thing for your family.
