Friday morning we will depart the hotel via bus at 0930 for a tour to the United States Naval
Academy in Annapolis.  This tour is designed for those who participated in U.S. military

various conflicts. Features include Chapel and crypt of John Paul Jones. This is part-walking,
part-audio visual presentation totaling 2.5 hours.  It will also include a stop at the gift shop.

For the people who do not wish to attend the game, there are several tours available in
