AIMM Featured in SEA CLASSICS Magazine

The November 2005 issue of Sea Classics magazine features a short article about the transfer of USS Hoga to the Arkansas Inland Maritime Museum.

Entitled "It's Official: Historic Pearl Harbor Tug Hoga Goes to Little Rock, Arkansas, Maritime Museum", the article is the lead item in the "Now Hear This!" segment of the magazine, a regular feature that covers significant Naval and Martime events around the world.

The article, on page 6, details the formal transfer ceremony on July 28, discusses Hoga's proud history and national significance and also features two photographs of Hoga - one of her fighting the fires aboard USS Nevada and a second photo showing her during her career as a fireboat for the Port of Oakland, CA.

The article closes with, "The creation of the Hoga museum and memorial in North Little Rock will allow future generations to share and commemorate its rich history."

Sea Classics is published monthly by Challenge Publications and is available by subscription or at your local book store.
