The Battleship will honor Ensign Louis Ivey and Admiral Paul Reason for Hands On History in February.
Ensign Ivey was initially assigned to the boiler division. Visitors can hold a fuel nozzle from one of the ship’s boiler rooms. One of those boiler rooms is on the Engineering Steam to Speed Tour that launches every Saturday and Sunday at 11:00. Ivey was later the division officer for the New Jersey’s radiomen, so we have a Gibson Girl Radio like the one that would have been on the ship with Ivey during the 1950s.
Admiral Reason, who led Battle Group Romeo from the Battleship in the 1980s, later wrote a book called Sailing New Seas about naval tactics that visitors can look through. The cruisebook from 1989 that includes Reason, is also on display.
