Yesterday, a U.S. Military Veteran, Don Snyder, and his wife, Sharon Snyder were awarded a Cruise Planners-American Express Travel franchise at the Renaissance in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

Cruise Planners, the nation’s largest home-based travel agent franchise network in the travel industry, awarded the Cruise Planners franchise to Don & Sharon after reviewing their story of service to the country and learning about their mutual love of travel.

Below is a picture and caption for you to include in your publication. With President’s Day coming up, this is a great feature story about a travel company supporting American Veterans through employment and business ownership opportunities. The Snyders, along with their 3 children served in the military for more than 24 years and say the sacrifice of serving their country is worth it.

“In the Army, I was able to explore more of the world than most people even know exists,” said Don Snyder, Army Veteran, Cruise Planners contest winner and new franchise owner. “Through Cruise Planners, we look forward to bringing families together by planning adventures the way we love to travel. If more people see the world, the world might be a better place.”
