I saw her in port in Norfolk when I was on active duty in the Marines in 1983. It was an image I'll never forget.

I can't see the video, this forum has a lot of problems for me showing people's media.


I grew up around the San Francisco Bay Area.  Every year the US Navy held a "Fleet Week" and a bunch of ships would pull into port, as well as the Blue Angles doing their thing for public relations.


I was very little, it was around the early 1980s that my dad took me to see New Jersey when she was in port.  He got me one of the dark blue New Jersey ballcaps also as a souvenir.  Later on I'd get a big plastic toy of NJ as well as build a model kit of the 1980s version of her.
