A Day in the Museum along the north shore of the Arkansas River-

Derek Dennison of Nixa, MO tries out a Turkish Naval Cap in the Maritime Museum while he was visiting with his family on Saturday and Chief David Farmer USN (ret), an AIMM volunteer spiffs up the last Turkish boat commander's dress uniform for display. The enlisted man's uniform was found in one of the lockers aboard the 394 and the last Muratreis Captain, Gurbuz Urgan very graciously supplied AIMM his uniform for exhibition.

The Museum building is open and telling the story of the Razorback/Muratreis and will soon have the USS Hoga's story detailed as well. Please drop by for a walk through history. 501-371-8320 for more information.
