Battleship New Jersey (BB-62)


I was down in Philadelphia last weekend with my family  when we stumbled across the the Battleship New Jersey moored on the Camden side of the Delaware River as floating museum. I thought I would share some pictures of the ships weaponry today. Nothing really special with the photography, just something a little bit different then my usual posts. My youngest son Daniel had to help me with all of the names of the naval guns this ship has for I do not know them.
