Atlantic City Airshow 2023
We spent a long day on the boardwalk in Atlantic City letting everyone know about the new US Navy submarine USS NEW JERSEY (SSN 796). The sailors were great ambassadors greeting people, shaking hands, getting photos with anyone who asked.
I did my best to get a photo of the booth, but the boardwalk was so busy it was impossible to get a clear shot.
Meanwhile we sold merchandise to help fund activities our committee is responsible for. These include:
- Funding to support crew visits to New Jersey
- Many activities during commissioning week
- Support of the boat’s MWR (Morale, Welfare, and Recreation) fund
- Funding for a post commissioning scholarship program for the crew and their families
It was a long hot day, and VERY loud at times as planes roared overhead. It was so worth it though, a great time!
