The Battleship New Jersey will remember the anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor with a T-6 Texan Trainer propeller planes fly over, followed by the casting of a memorial wreath upon the Delaware River and the playing of TAPS. The fly-over, weather permitting, will take place at 9am and the wreath casting and TAPS will take place on the forecastle (forward deck). All guests are invited on the forecastle to attend.

On May 23, 1943, the USS New Jersey was commissioned into the United State Navy at the Philadelphia Navy Yard. The Battleship will celebrate the 75th anniversary of her Commissioning with a ceremony on the forecastle (forward deck) at 10am on May 23. This event will feature key remarks from regional dignitaries and USS New Jersey veterans. The Battleship will formally dedicate the recently re-installed Quad 40 Gun. We’ll also have live music, including a rendition of TAPS by Battleship volunteer and bugler Nan Lacorte, a memorial wreath casting, and even cake for all guests as part of the morning’s activities.
The ceremony is free to attend.
