This bill designates the USS New Jersey, also known as the Battleship New Jersey, as the New Jersey State Ship. The USS New Jersey was launched in 1942 and was engaged in three wars, World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War, and has become one of the most decorated battleships in the naval history of the United States. The ship now resides in Camden, New Jersey, as an educational museum, informing the public about the storied history of the ship, and providing children opportunities to learn about science, technology, the arts and mathematics. The Battleship New Jersey also offers a unique overnight experience to visitors to have a glimpse of life on the ship, where visitors sleep in the bunks used by sailors and eat meals in the mess hall. The designation of State Ship recognizes the vital role the USS New Jersey played in the country's naval history.
