WHY IS THIS PAGE HERE? Easy! SPECIAL RECOGNITION.
  
The U.S.S. NEW JERSEY (BB-62), also known as the "Big J," is the most decorated warship of the United States Navy in the history of the nation, however the most important and honorable historical event was taken from her for merely political reasons.

Many websites (some linked below for your review) including the Official US Navy website mention those facts, however the greatest or most important fact never mentioned involves the the ceremony in Tokyo Bay of the surrender of Japan ending the Pacific Theater conflict of World War II.

History records that the surrender of Japan took place aboard the deck of the New Jersey's sister ship, U.S.S. MISSOURI (BB-63) -- The "Big Mo."

The surrender ceremony should have taken place on the decks of the U.S.S. NEW JERSEY, since it was serving as Admiral William "Bull" Halsey's (a fellow New Jersean) Flagship in the Pacific.

This honor was taken from the NEW JERSEY because of a decision by President Harry S. Truman, who just happened to be from the state of Missouri. The only purpose of this page is to present this fact to anyone interested in truth and to point out the fallacy of men.

As a kid growing up Mario can recall wanting to see this great ship and as things so happened, he not only got to see her but actually slept on the ship.
  
The U.S.S. NEW JERSEY is currently retired and has been converted into a historical floating museum in her name sake state. The Museum is located in Camden, New Jersey which is accross the Delaware River from Philadelphia, PA. If you're in the area, take a visit and live history!


February 28-29, 2004 during a Boy Scouts of America overnight camping trip aboard the U.S.S. New Jersey, Aidan was privileged in serving on the flag raising detail and Mario had the honor of commanding the Honor Guard detail which raised the flag as the national anthem played. A most unforgettable experience.
