The Merchant Marine in World War II

Day: Monday, March 23, 2020
Time: 7:00 p.m.
Location: Civic Hall, Blackwood Campus, N.J.

PowerPoint by Joseph F. Wilson, whose father served in the Merchant Marine aboard the famed “Liberty Ships.”

Without the Merchant Marine transporting vital supplies to the troops, the mighty allied war machine would’ve come to a screeching halt. Despite cargo ships being sunk at an alarming rate by U-Boats and bomber planes, patriotic Americans sailed into harm’s way to “Deliver the Goods.”
