please view some testimonials of the past below, of which, we are very proud
due to security concerns, effective immediately, we will not longer maintain a separate website
for each and every Cruise book, until the material has aged to the point where showing it will no
longer be a security concern to the unit or location involved.

This is Major Evans, the Executive Officer for the battalion.  I am personally  very grateful we chose you to be the our vendor on this book.  I appreciate your flexibility and professionalism throughout.  I am looking forward to the final product.  Semper Fidelis.

Major Jacob Evans
Exeucitive Officer

Thank you very much for the support and flexibility that you provided to my battalion.  I am anxious to see the final product of the cruise book, as I am sure the rest of the Marines and Sailors that were part of this deployment are as well.  I have courtesy copied my chain of command along with other representatives that assisted in compiling and generating the final product that we submitted.  Again I thank you for the professionalism and generosity for the extra cruise books that you provided.  I will be sure to recommend your company to other battalions.  Semper Fidelis (Always faithfully)

I cannot tell you how pleased I am with the quality support, assistance and final product of our Battalion Deployment Book. Michael has been absolutely awesome and has worked very hard to make this book the BEST Deployment Book that I have ever seen. The quality of this book is just tremendous at an amazingly fair price, all color as well. I could not be happier and the Marines that have seen them were thrilled with how it all came together. I salute this fine company for a job well done and would recommend them to anyone who wants to preserve the unit lineage in this way. I can assure you of one thing, on my next deployment; he will most certainly have my business. I give him the max, four stars for a job well done. Thank you Michael, you are a true professional.”

The very first Cruise books we ever created, were for the "TOPHATTERS" of the Strike Fighter Squadron Fourteen (VFA-14), VMAQ-2, VMAQ-4 and also for the MALS-13 U.S.M.C. These projects were done at a time when these and numerous other units were deployed to the Mediterranean, (Apr 93-Dec 95) as part of NATO's "OPERATION DENY FLIGHT" campaign within the Balkans. During the same period, we also published a number of High School Year books for the DODDS School system, we chose however, specialization within the Military Cruise book market.  A choice that we are very pleased with

More than two years ago, we declined a chance to bid on becoming the publisher for the USAF Academy's Yearbook, for a three year period. The reason is that we did not want to pool our resources to one single project or to establish a new office within the state of Colorado. Just having been considered for this project however served as an inspiration to the entire staff
