What famous event happened with this ship?


Recommended Posts

Ha ha...more like showing the guns!

 

I see that I typed that we were the third ship...we were the 2nd in the column formation.

 

she fired those guns in 1984, the Jersey fired almost 300 shells at Druze and Shi'ite positions in the hills overlooking Beirut. Some 30 of these massive projectiles rained down on a Syrian command post in the Bekaa Valley east of Beirut, killing the general commanding Syrian forces in Lebanon and several other senior officers. This was the heaviest shore bombardment since the Korean War

And he wasn't just telling a good sea story - S1c Everett E. Frye is indeed an officially listed USS Arizona survivor.
