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.

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
