Sunday November 14

1:00 PM  –  3:00 PM

A special day of education for students and their parents aboard the ship.

In celebration of Native American Heritage month, learn about one of New Jersey's admirals, JJ "Jocko" Clark. Clark was born during the 1890s as a member of the the Cherokee Nation, in what was then described as "Indian Country" and is now known as Oklahoma. He went on to join the Naval Academy, earning his pilot's wings, and fighting from the First World War up through the Korean War. Between the World Wars, Admiral Clark tested planes that would be used by the Navy during the Second World War. In 1953, he commanded the 7th Fleet from New Jersey and was present for the signing of the Armistice ending the Korean War hostilities. In this program designed for elementary school aged students, guests will build their own aircraft to learn about aerodynamics and take a tour of the ship to see where Admiral Clark commanded from.
