Thank you for posting this. Very interesting and informative on the process of firing those big guns even after 66 years later. I hope to visit USS New Jersey someday. This video reminds me of those old films we'd watch in class on a projector and the movie The Bridges at Toko Ri. :cap_like:

Before my father passed away, he told me a story about being on patrol on the coast of Korea, during the "police action" , when they spotted a supply convoy on a road that was on a hill. he said they called for an air strike, but the only thing available was the New Jersey. He said they fired one spotting round and it sounded like a freight train going over. The patrol corrected off of that. Then a minute or so later he thought the sky had fallen on them and the convoy as well as the side of the hill just wasn't there anymore. and they think where  is no value in having gun support like that anymore.
