Harrison, commander, Naval Weapons Station Earle, lay a wreath in memory of fallen service members off the battleship New Jersey's port stern at Camden, N.J., June 3, 2012. Soldiers and Airmen of the New Jersey National Guard along with their families, as well as Sailors from Naval Weapons Station Earle and residents from Veterans Memorial Home at Menlo Park were treated by Jersey Mike's Subs to Christmas in July on the battleship. The event was held to raise awareness for Wreaths Across America (WAA). For more than 20 years, WAA places a holiday wreath on each of the headstones at Arlington National Cemetery.
