Of Turkey, Subs and Tugs and Mayors

Mayor Patrick H. Hays (left) of North Little Rock shows Mayor Yusuf Ziya Yilmaz of Samsun, Turkey a painting and model of the USS Hoga which will be joining the USS Razorback/TCG Muratreis at the Arkansas Inland Maritime Museum at North Little Rock. The Razorback/Muratreis served both the United States Navy and the Turkish Navy.

Mayor Yilmaz and his wife were visiting North Little Rock to establish a sister city relationship. Mayor Hays has visited Samsun on a couple of occasions and is excited about the relationship that has blossomed between our city and the country of Turkey.

Come to visit the Maritime Museum Building for more information about the Razorback and its service in Turkey as well as her rich history in the US Navy.
