Naples: “Last Roll Call” Excerpt

37 – Naples

My group was marched down toward the end of the pier where one of those stream-lined cruise ships was docked. My spirits quickly lifted at the thought of sailing home on one of those sleek, fast, luxury liners. Just as we were about to approach the liner, I heard, “Left turn!” We marched down a narrow pier where we were greeted by an old, rusty liberty ship.
