From One Veteran to Another

The original Queen Mary, which is now permanently moored at Long Beach, is something of a military veteran, having served as a troop carrier for five years during World War II. With Memorial Day coming up next month, Queen Mary is saluting US military personnel all during the month of May.

All active and retired military personnel with an ID card will receive a special general admission rate of $5 during the month. Anyone accompanying them who is not in the military will receive a $5 discount on the regular admission price. Parking is not included in the price. More information is available on the ship's website at www.queenmary.com

The classic oceanliner is worth a visit (or even an overnight stay) if you are in the area.
