NOTE: THE US COAST GUARD HAS MOVED UP THE TIME FOR THE EAGLE, WHICH IS NOW PROJECTED TO PASS THE BATTLESHIP BETWEEN 11:30AM AND 12:30PM.

The Battleship New Jersey will fire her 5-inch gun to salute the arrival of the US Coast Guard Cutter Eagle, which will pass the Battleship between 11:30am to 12:30pm today, Friday, Sept. 27.

All guests touring the Battleship at that time are welcome to watch the Eagle as she passes and the Battleship’s gun salute.  Food and beverages will be available to purchase on the Main Deck Portside before and after the Eagles passes.

The majestic sailing ship, the Coast Guard Cutter Eagle, provides USCG Academy cadets and officer candidates with their first taste of sea and salt air. Built in Germany in 1936 and re-commissioned by the United States at the close of World War II, the EAGLE is the largest active tall ship flying the Stars and Stripes.  The Eagle will dock at Penn’s Landing in Philadelphia for the weekend.

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.
The ceremony will take place in the Officers’ Wardroom and is free for guests to attend.
 
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
