Ep.72: Battleship New Jersey
Play • 1 hr 23 min

     The Iowa Class Battleships are some of the most powerful ships to sail into battle and represent the end of an era in naval warfare. The USS New Jersey was launched a year after Pearl Harbor and immediately went into battle; playing a role in the largest naval battles ever seen. She continued to serve for nearly five decades before being decommissioned in the early ‘90’s. In this episode, we talk to Ryan Szimanski, the curator of the USS New Jersey Museum about the most decorated ship in US Navy history.
