Meet the Showboat | Fire Control: The Human Element

March 27, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Developing a successful approach to fighting the Ship effectively required a team of officers and enlisted men. They developed procedures and tactics based on lessons learned from engagements and adapted to evolving technologies. CDR Chuck Gore, USN, Retired, will introduce you to the gunnery department, its missions, and how tactics changed during the war years.

“Fire Control: The Human Element” is part six of the “Meet the Showboat” series. Battleship volunteers RDML Ron Henderson, USN, Retired; LtCol John Munn, USMC, Retired; CDR Charles Gore, USN, Retired; LCDR Mike Bowers, USN, Retired; and Alex Dydula invite you to join them in an opportunity to “Zoom In” with an expert on Battleship NORTH CAROLINA. Each virtual presentation lasts 30-45 minutes followed by the opportunity to engage with the presenter. The programs are free, but online registration is required.
