LAST PATROL INC. is an all-volunteer, non-profit POW-MIA Awareness and Veterans organization. Located in South Jersey, The Last Patrol INC has helped raise money for veterans, veteran homes and other various veteran needs. For the past two years the group has organized the “Run to The Battleship”,

which has raised over $33,000.00 for the Battleship New Jersey. The money is raised from the fee to ride in the parade, T-shirt sales, and donations from individuals and local businesses.

Located on the Camden Waterfront across the river from Center City Philadelphia the Battleship New Jersey Museum and Memorial offers guided and self-guided tours daily, beginning at 9 a.m. with the last tour departing at 5 p.m. In addition to daytime tours, families and youth groups can spend the night aboard the Battleship as part of the overnight encampment program. Guests experience dinner and breakfast served from the chow line in the crew’s mess, a tour of the ship, a ride on the 4D flight simulator and the opportunity to sleep in the bunks that the crew of the USS New Jersey once did. Special group packages and event/meeting space are available. For more information, call 856-966-1652 or visit
