July 27th Photos Page

I was onboard again on July 27th.  Below are a few photos from that days visit and a couple of bonus photos from the big National Grand Prix Race held in Washington D.C. on July 20th.  I took a Saturday off from volunteering and went to see that race, it was awesome.  My next day onboard will be a rare weekday, Wednesday, August 7th.  I'm going both to work, and participate in a Rap session being conducted that morning by the ships new COO.  As always, we're constantly looking for new volunteers, come on down and join us in our efforts to make the Battleship New Jersey into the best Naval Ship Museum, Bar None!  That's it for now, hope you enjoy the photos.
