Pearl Harbor Day Tribute in NLR

NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - On this 76th anniversary of Pearl Harbor Day, a local ceremony paid tribute to surviving veterans of the attack who are from Arkansas.

 

It took place at the Arkansas Inland Maritime Museum on Riverfront Park Drive.

 

The Arkansan veterans honored at the ceremony included William Chase and Walter Smith.

 

"We really like to have the veterans, who are most of the people here, come down and remember what they did during the war," says Greg Zonner with the Arkansas Inland Maritime Museum.

 

Following the ceremony, the main deck of the tugboat Hoga was opened for tours. Hoga is a National Historic Landmark recognized for her heroic efforts in Pearl Harbor during the Dec. 7, 1941 attack.
