Special Event to be Held aboard Razorback/Muratreis

The USS Razorback/TCG Muratreis will be hosting a service to mark the anniversary of the death of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk. Ataturk is considered the “George Washington” of Turkey.

The event will be held aboard the Razorback which served as the Muratreis in the Turkish Navy after she was turned over to the Turks by the US Navy at the end of her distinguished career as the USS Razorback. She is now the anchor of the Arkansas Inland Maritime Museum in North Little Rock.

The event will begin at 9:00 AM on November 10, 2005.
