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.
