On the Discovery Princess, Princess Cruises welcomed Colonel James H. Harvey III, one of the surviving Tuskegee Airmen, on his 100th birthday celebration cruise to Alaska.
During World War II, Lieutenant Colonel Harvey served as part of a group of African American pilots in the United States Army Air Corps and Air Force (USAF).
Known as the Tuskegee Airmen, he was a former fighter pilot with the 332nd Fighter Group’s 99th Squadron.
The Discovery Princess crew and hundreds of people joined in to wish Harvey a very happy birthday on board the ship as the McChord Field Honor Guard presented him with a USAF traditional display of colors.
“We are honored to celebrate the 100th birthday of Lieutenant Colonel Harvey III, a trailblazer, hero, and true Top Gun,” said Princess Cruises president John Padgett. From all of us at Princess Cruises, we salute Lt. Col. Harvey and wish him a very happy 100th birthday! His life and legacy should inspire everyone about the power of courage, determination, and perseverance.
In a scheduled discussion, Harvey will share personal stories from his time in service with other guests on the Alaska cruise.
