Hands On History: Adm. Reason and Ensign Ivey @ Battleship New Jersey
Feb 1 @ 9:30 am – Feb 29 @ 3:00 pm
Hands On History:  Adm. Reason and Ensign Ivey @ Battleship New Jersey

The Battleship will honor Ensign Louis Ivey and Admiral Paul Reason for Hands On History in February.

Ensign Ivey was initially assigned to the boiler division. Visitors can hold a fuel nozzle from one of the ship’s boiler rooms. One of those boiler rooms is on the Engineering Steam to Speed Tour that launches every Saturday and Sunday at 11:00. Ivey was later the division officer for the New Jersey’s radiomen, so we have a Gibson Girl Radio like the one that would have been on the ship with Ivey during the 1950s.

Admiral Reason, who led Battle Group Romeo from the Battleship in the 1980s, later wrote a book called Sailing New Seas about naval tactics that visitors can look through. The cruisebook from 1989 that includes Reason, is also on display.

Ceremony for the 75th Anniversary of the Battle of Iwo Jima @ Battleship New Jersey
In continuation of the Battleship New Jersey’s commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II, the ship will host a ceremony at 9:30am on Saturday, Feb. 22. The keynote speaker will be WWII veteran and a participant in the Battle of Iwo Jima, Frank Beach. The Battleship will remember our military heroes who gave the ultimate sacrifice with the casting a wreath into the Delaware River, a 21-gun salute by the PFC Daniel Giordano Marine Detachment Rifle Team, and the performance of TAPs on bugle.
The ceremony will take place in the Officers’ Wardroom and is free for guests to attend.
 
Further, the Battleship will be real-time posting on Twitter some of the events of the Battle of Iwo Jima on Feb. 17.
 
The American goal of the battle was to gain control of the island and its airfields to allow the Americans to have a staging location in order to attack the Japanese main islands. Over five weeks, this battle had some of the bloodiest fighting of the war in the Pacific. During the battle, New Jersey participated in the shore bombardment of the island
