New Artifact Found inside Razorback

Recently, during some routine restoration work aboard Razorback, a small, cloth-wrapped Koran, the holy book of the Islamic religion, was found, tucked away in a small cubbyhole.

Museum maintenance man Johnnie Studdard points to where the Koran was hidden away. It would have only been accessible to an officer in the upper bunk in the forward Junior Officer's stateroom, in the Forward Battery compartment (the officer's wardroom is to the left, the JO's stateroom is to the right.

This unique artifact has been cataloged and will be kept in our archival collection.
