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.

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
