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.
