Curator Ryan Szimanski will do a historical overview of the launch at the Philadelphia Navy Yard on Dec. 7, 1942 of our nation’s largest battleship. Volunteer Nan LaCorte will begin the ceremony with the performance of our National Anthem on bugle. All guests can enjoy a piece of cake at the conclusion of the ceremony.
On Saturday, March 14 at 10am in the Officers’ Wardroom aboard the Battleship New Jersey, military families and veterans are invited to attend a presentation by Karen Jennings and the work of the Military Support Group of New Jersey, Inc.
