Review for Home Port Alliance for the USS New Jersey, Inc., Camden, NJ, USA
As a volunteer curatorial support specialist aboard Battleship New Jersey Musuem and Memorial for nearly ten years, I have grown to appreciate what a great educational and heritage resource the ship represents. The experience of the ship is a complate and accurate presentation of what Navy life is all about, even today. The sights, the sounds, the presentation all represent how the ship appeared to the sailors who served in her. During my most enjoyable efforts in helping restore the ship likness of the power it represented during her sea service, I was able to create displays and restored systems that presented her in her true fashion and helped clarify what the visitors take away from Battleship New Jersey. Though experiencing severe economic hardships the splendid staff has perservered and maintains the her in great fashion. As I said before, Battleship New Jersey Museum and Memorial represents a priceless example of the technology and industry of the people who built and the era she was consructed in.
