PRODUCT ID : whco022714b14

The USS New Jersey (BB62) was restored and opened in October 2001 as an educational museum and memorial to all the brave sailors who served on her during her long career starting December 7, 1942, on the Camden Waterfront in New Jersey.  The Battleship New Jersey, built at the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard, was launched just a year after the attack at Pearl Harbor.  She was decommissioned for the last time on February 8, 1991, and stricken from the mobilization asset list on January 4, 1999.

The USS New Jersey is the most decorated and surviving battleship in America's history.  Of the nineteen Battle and Campaign Stars the New Jersey received, nine Battle Stars were for WWII, four for the Korean conflict, two for Vietnam, and three Campaign Stars were for service off Beirut and in the Persian Gulf before Operation Desert Storm.  The USS New Jersey also earned the Navy Unit Commendation for Vietnam service.

This ornament is a wonderful keepsake to remember your visit to this historic ship and unique museum - and a great gift for every veteran and history buff.
