World War II veteran Joe Berry crossed the Atlantic Ocean on the Queen Mary ship. It was built for recreational purposes and then transformed into a military vessel to carry troops to war. It was then converted back into cruise ship and is now parked permanently in California and used for tourism. Berry went to California and took a tour of the boat he once took to war.

In 1943, Joe Berry, 89, spent four days aboard the Queen Mary during his tour in World War II. About a week ago, he returned to tour the ship.
