Boy Scout Breakfast on BB62

The crew of the USS NEW JERSEY (SSN 796) had breakfast with the Boy Scouts aboard the Battleship New Jersey Museum and Memorial on Sunday. As part of this namesake visit, the crew were able to talk with the Scouts and their parents about the building and testing of the newest Virginia-class submarine scheduled to be commissioned in October 2023. They also were able to learn more about the nation’s most decorated battleship from many of the ship’s veterans. 

Special thanks to Ken Kersch and Jack Willard for helping with this visit.
