Seeking A U.S.S. New Jersey Shipmate

The family of a Long Island Korean War era veteran is seeking a shipmate who served aboard the U.S.S. New Jersey (BB-62), anytime between its commissioning in 1942, through its decommissioning in the 1990s.

Their father, who has recently passed away, was building a scale model of the ship as a hobby here on Long Island at his home. He was never able to complete it.

The family would like to gift this to a former shipmate of the Jersey who is interseted in completeing the build, preferrably someone local or able to retrieve it from Bayshore in  Suffolk County. Arrangements can be made from Queens also.

The U.S.S. New Jersey is the Navy’s most decorated battleship in its history.

  1. Thank you for the offer, but I will pass. I live in a small apartment and would have no place to put it.
