    CAMDEN, N.J. -- (MAY 4, 2022) U.S. Navy veteran Todd Frace greets the crew of USS New Jersey (SSN-796) in Alberta Woods Park in Camden, N.J. before a community cleanup event. Frace served aboard USS Memphis in the 1990s and now works for Covanta, a company which recovers energy from trash in New Jersey. Frace said to the Sailors, "The skills you're leaning in submarines are very valuable to the energy industry." He encouraged them that good jobs were awaiting them outside of military service.
    Sailors gathered early at Alberta Woods Park in Camden, NJ with Mayor Victor Carstarphen and about 100 people including New Jersey State Troopers, Camden Public Works Dept, city employees and volunteers from Rutgers University, Covanta and a large group of resident volunteers in support of Navy Week Trenton and Camden Strong, a campaign to revitalize the city
    The group worked together for about 4 hours to clean up the neighborhood, resulting in about two dump trucks full of waste removed from the city streets.
    Mayor Carstarphen said, "A clean city is a happy city." as he led the group through the streets with a bullhorn in his hand, encouraging residents to come out and help with the community cleanup effort.
    The Navy has done over 20 humanitarian aid and community outreach projects in the greater Trenton, NJ area this week as part of Navy Week Trenton. Navy Week events are held in different cities across the United States year round. They are designed to connect Americans from all walks of life with their Sailors.
