CAMDEN - Veterans aboard the battleship New Jersey held a Pearl Harbor Day ceremony.

They remembered those who died in the Japanese attack on this date in 1941, which caused the United States to enter World War II.

The ship was launched a little more than a year after the attack and saw service in the Pacific during the war. It is docked in Camden as a museum.

Rep. Donald Norcross gave the keynote address during Monday's ceremony.

The Associated Press wire services contributed to this report.
