ARMY JROTC Visit’s USS New Jersey Battleship

The Mount Pleasant High School Army JROTC program recently took a field trip with approximately 45 students to tour the USS New Jersey Battleship in Camden New Jersey.  Students learned about the history of the USS New Jersey and when it was decommissioned (shut down) for the last time in 1991 after serving a total of 21 years in the active fleet.  The ship earned a Navy Unit Commendation for service in Vietnam and 19 battle and campaign stars for combat operations during World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Lebanese Civil War, and service in the Persian Gulf.
