Sandwiching in History Tour
A well-preserved, largely unaltered example of this once-common type of craft, the USS Hoga is of exceptional significance in American history as the only known surviving yard craft present at Pearl Harbor during the Japanese attack on the U.S. Pacific Fleet on December 7, 1941. While not engaged in combating the enemy, this craft performed heroic service, extinguishing fires on burning battleships and other vessels in the harbor and rescuing wounded seamen from the oily waters of Battleship Row.
This event location is the USS Hoga at the Arkansas Inland Maritime Museum.
PLEASE NOTE: This event will be open only to the first 125 attendees, due to the nature of the museum facility. The presentation location at the Museum is handicap accessible, but the USS Hoga is not.
We will have the chance to tour the USS Hoga during this free event, but the other areas of the museum require a paid ticket. Children under 5 can attend this event, but are not allowed access to the USS Razorback submarine if you wish to purchase a ticket to tour it afterwards.
