The Battleship will hold a ceremony to commemorate the 35th anniversary of the bombing of the Marines Barracks in Beirut, Lebanon, where 241 American service members were killed, including USS New Jersey’s CPO Michael Gorchinski.

USS New Jersey veterans from the 1980s will recall the bombing and remember their ship mate in this free ceremony at 10am on Tuesday, Oct. 23, on the forecastle (forward deck) of the Battleship. A memorial wreath will be casted upon the Delaware River to remember the passing of Chief Gorchinski.
