Battleship Not Hosting Thanksgiving for Meals for Troops This Year, But it’s a Good Thing!

The Battleship will not be hosting Thanksgiving meals for the troops this year — but it’s a good thing!  Most of the troops at regional bases are home with their families this year!

“The Battleship always wants to help and support our troops,” said Jack Willard, Sr. VP of Marketing and Sales for the Battleship New Jersey.  “Fortunately, this year our help is not needed.  We would like to thank all the sponsors, donors and volunteers who have helped with this event in past years.  If military personnel are in need next year, we will certainly open the Battleship and have them enjoy a full-course meal, entertainment and tours.”

The Battleship will be closed for tours on Thanksgiving, Thursday, Nov. 24.  The Battleship will be open for walk-up tours all other days, except for Christmas, from 9:30am to 3pm.
