“The Big J” – USS New Jersey | Pacific Paratrooper

USS New Jersey (BB-62) Camden NJ USA

Deano In America

In my endless quest to see everything I have ever been interested in since I was a kid, I recently walked across the Ben Franklin Bridge over the Delaware River from PhiladelphiaPA to CamdenNJ to see the mighty Iowa Class Battleship the USS New Jersey (BB-62) known as “The Big J“. She served from 1942 to 1991 and today this former US Navy Battleship continues on as a floating museum.
