Battleship Welcomes CO and Chief of PCU New Jersey

The Battleship welcomed aboard CDR Joseph M. Spinks, Commanding Officer, and STSCS(SS) Hamilton T. Felt, Chief of the Boat, PCU NEW JERSEY (SSN 796), a Virginia-class submarine, currently under construction in Newport News, Virginia.  The CO and Chief were led on a tour of the Battleship by Curator Ryan Szimanski on Thursday, Nov. 7.

The Battleship welcomed members of the crew aboard for a tour earlier in the year.

The submarine will be the third Navy vessel to be called the New Jersey. The Battleship New Jersey Museum and Memorial is currently working on a new exhibit that will feature all three New Jerseys.
