Sailors from the USS Gettysburg visit Gettysburg National Military Park
The Gettysburg Foundation was pleased to welcome the officers and crew of the USS Gettysburg (CG 64) to Gettysburg National Park this past month. As part of the visit, the group toured the museum, took a guided tour of the battlefield, and helped maintain headstones in the Soldiers’ National Cemetery. Along with several other activities with the borough of Gettysburg, Master Chief Fire Controlman Christopher Allen reenlisted at the Gettysburg Foundation’s Gettysburg Lincoln Railroad Station.
The ship's commanding officer, Captain Corey Keniston, and Lieutenant Junior Grade Jeff Bortz, the ship's navigator, presented the Foundation with a Navy Jack that will be flown over various sites of the battlefield and returned to the USS Gettysburg to be taken to sea when the ship returns to service in 2019 after a modernization program.
Members of the crew will return to Gettysburg in July to participate in the Battlefield Anniversary Celebration and the Gettysburg Foundation plans to offer a special tour of the USS Gettysburg in Norfolk this fall – stay tuned for more information!
