January 23 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Home to 2,000+ officers, enlisted personnel and a Marine Detachment, Battleship NORTH CAROLINA provided a place to sleep, eat, shower, check out books, watch movies and boxing matches, get a haircut, have your shoes repaired and more. Discover life at sea with RDML Ron Henderson, USN, Retired, a man who has “been there, done that.”
