From the Battleship Mass website:
“Experience 1940’s holiday ambiance, and enjoy a three-course meal recreated from the battleship’s original Christmas menu featuring turkey and all the fixings served in the Wardroom aboard the Battleship. Plus, find out where the USS Massachusetts was during the holidays and what life was like for her sailors on Christmas day – did they have parties? Did they exchange gifts? Did they get the day off? Join the museum for an amazing meal, music, and a fun time for the whole family.
Proceeds go toward the maintenance and conservation of the Historic National Landmarks berthed at Battleship Cove, America’s Fleet Museum.”
This is the second time we’ve attended the Navy Christmas dinner. We do eat where the higher-up men would eat. I have included a photo of three the lower ranks would eat. Certainly a difference.
This is a tradition I hope we can continue because it is fun and humbling.
