Comments:

I served onboard the USS New Jersey (BB-62) as an OS1/ SW during the entire conflict. I received the Navy Achievement Medal for training and leading the Battleship Naval Gunfire Support Team to respond when called on to support the US Marine contigent after the horrible attack that morning and afterwards. Am I eligible to be a BVA member? Answer: Yes, you are eligible, as are your shipmates!

I was an ET3 aboard the R.L.Page FFG-5

We provided some NGFS but our 54 was down a lot of the time.

Provided lifeguard duty for the USS John F. Kennedy.

I have photos of the USS New Jersey firing over us at targets in Beruit.

I was onboard the USS Bowen FF-1079 loading the 5 inch 54 when it fired the first 4 rounds at the location requested by the USMC ground spotter requesting NGFS, I will always remember that day.
