USS Hoga Arrives in NLR

NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - A new addition is now docked at the Arkansas Inland Maritime Museum.

The USS Hoga, a U.S. Navy tugboat used in life-saving operations during the 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor sailed into town Monday.

The boat began a long journey from California last month, coming through the Panama Canal on a cargo ship, stopping in Houston and New Orleans before being towed up the Mississippi River, then the Arkansas River.

The USS Hoga received National Landmark Status on 30 June 1989 while still serving as the fireboat City of Oakland.

On July 28, 2005, the US Navy officially transferred Hoga to the City of North Little Rock.
