This year marks the 75th Anniversary of the Japanese attacks on Pearl Harbor, and Arkansas has set aside a full week of commemorative events in order to remember that somber day in history,and celebrate those that survived. Head to the Arkansas Inland Maritime Museum this December 5-11, 2016, where people will gather in observance of Pearl Harbor Dayto tour the vessels that now live at the museum and pay homage to those that suffered. There will be a formal ceremony held on December 7that 11:55 a.m., which was the local time of the attack.
Two naval vessels from World War II will be open for free self-guided tours and reflection. The USS Hogatugboat is the last floating Navy vessel from the Pear Harbor attacks, which fought fires for 72 continuous hours. The submarine USS Razorbackwas in Tokyo Bay when Japan surrendered, thus ending World War II. This slice of history lives at the Arkansas Inland Maritime Museum, which is open year round for those wanting to explore exhibits any day of the year.Small children will not be permitted for the vessel tours, but can be in attendance for the ceremony.
