South Jersey

July 19, 1998

Ship's birthplace

Historically, home indicates a birthplace. I was born in Camden. Like most people who labor, then retire, I am forced to leave this exorbitantly taxed state. Next spring, I will be relocated in tax-friendly Florida to enjoy my retirement.

When I depart this life, my earthly suit will be returned to its home and its final resting place will be South Jersey. The only way this plan might change is if N.J. politicians find a way to tax people who are buried here. I hope I did not give them any ideas for a new tax.

The USS New Jersey was born in Camden and raised in the oceans of the world. When I look down from heaven, the battleship New Jersey should be in its final resting place: Camden. Home!
