The Home Port Alliance for the USS New Jersey, America's most decorated battleship, together with Troy Collins, CEO of the Battleship New Jersey Museum & Memorial, announce the appointment of six new members to the Board of Trustees. Co-chaired by John Matheussen, CEO of the Delaware River Port Authority and Patricia Egan Jones, Camden County Surrogate, the Board, established in 1998 to facilitate the Battleship's return to its permanent berth on the Delaware River's Camden Waterfront across from Center City Philadelphia, has spearheaded the ship's massive restoration and new life as a living, breathing history classroom and signature waterfront attraction for veterans, patriots, families and students from around the world. "As part of our mission to generate support across the region for the continued restoration and preservation of one of the nation's greatest naval treasures," said Matheussen, "we need to ensure that our Board keeps evolving. This extraordinary military vessel creates a unique bridge between Camden and Philadelphia, and just as we were able to bring Mayor Street and Commerce Chairman Vernon Hill together as Co-Chairs for our first fundraiser this summer, we're delighted to welcome these noted leaders from all areas of our community to the Battleship New Jersey family, and value the wisdom and expertise they bring to the organization."
