Served with distinction during Kamikazi attacks in the Pacific Theatre during World War II. It later joined fleets in the Atlantic and Mediterranean and played a part in America's early space program. Returned John Glenn, the first American to orbit the earth, to Grand Turk Island for medical exams.
This anchor is also a symbol that represents the early shipping commerce on the Toms River which helped build the village as a commercial center.
