Re-enactment of Capt. Peniston “Firepower for Freedom” Speech on Dec. 17 @ Battleship New Jersey
Dec 17 @ 11:00 am – 11:30 am
Re-enactment of Capt. Peniston "Firepower for Freedom" Speech on Dec. 17 @ Battleship New Jersey
On December 17, 1969, Captain Robert Peniston decommissioned the Battleship New Jersey for the third time. At the time, the New Jersey was the only active battleship in the world and many feared that there would  never be more battleships again. New Jersey and her crew had been off the coast of Vietnam only a few months before this decommissioning and many credit the ship for saving American lives on shore.
At the decommissioning ceremony, Captain Peniston said farewell to a ship that meant so much to so many, “Rest well, yet sleep lightly, and hear the call, if again sounded, to provide ‘Firepower for Freedom.”
A reenactment of Peniston’s speech as well as some words from the ship’s curator will take place on Tuesday, Dec. 17 on the Forecastle at 11:00. Free with Museum Admission.
