Ceremony to Honor Mustafa Ataturk's Memory

Coskun Bayrak, PhD, of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock and a group of students from UALR held a brief ceremony on the deck of USS Razorback / TCG Murat Reis to honor the memory of Mustafa Ataturk, the founder of the Turkish Republic and its first President.

Dr. Bayrak and the students toured the museum, which features many artifacts from Razorback's service in the Turkish Navy, including uniforms and a portrait of President Ataturk from the Officer's Wardroom.
