The Old Honors the New



Love this photo from BB62, the New Jersey Battleship now a museum in Camden.


It seems the battleship crew has created a special compartment below decks to honor the newest New Jersey, the USS New Jersey (SSN796) submarine soon to be christened.


The Battleship folks are telling the whole story about the new submarine as part of the Navy's intentions to help the people of New Jersey continue great pride in their role in Naval history as well as to enable crew members to know and appreciate more about the state for whom their boat is named. Every submarine crew member who visits the ship will sign the banner which remains part of the display.
