On March 25th, 2004, The Secretary of the Navy Gordon England, announced that the Pearl Harbor Survivor
USS HOGA YT-146, will be donated to the Arkansas Inland Maritime Museum.  WHAT A SLAP IN THE FACE!  Bill Clinton, the friend of all military personel, was no doubt behind the motives of this decision.  He was trying to get HOGA a few years ago to place at his presidential library in Little Rock.  The Hoga Preservation Society is less than happy with this decision as you can see at their website http://www.tugboathoga.com
HOGA was given a Commendation by ADM. Chester Nimitz for her crucial role in defending/aiding many ships on 12/7/41.

Aloha All,
In background, for our readers, we welcome news of any acquisition by any museum, or changes of accessions for any museum, of Pearl Harbor related materials. We also must assure that we are interested in the preservation of such materials -especially the USS Hoga- but can not weigh in about the ongoing political decisions involved.

We know that four web sites have been seeking support for the acquisition of USS Hoga:

Friends of the Pearl Harbor Tug Hoga YT-146, Honolulu, HI

Tugboat Hoga Preservation Society, Honolulu, HI

North Little Rock Maritime Museum, North Little Rock, AR

USS Hoga YT-146 Association, Hollywood, FL

Our contacts within the Honolulu Star-Bulletin newspaper has kept us informed about the decision and suggested that an appeal to the decision is ongoing. We await further news.

Standing by...

In 1995 I was envolved in the early days of helping to establish an organization in Hawaii to save the Hoga and got very familiar with the Naval Departments extensive regulations on what it takes to receive a former naval vessel for museum preservation.  Under the Naval Sea Systems Command, the Naval Ship Donation Program has to evaluate applications for detailed criterian envolving business/financial, technical (mooring, towing, maintenance and environmental) and curatorial/museum development. It is difficult to prove that you can meet all these requirements.  Financial ability is a key ingrediant.  Unfortunately in Hawaii, for Hoga, is lot's of donated funds are already going to the Battleship Missouri.  With Arizona, Missouri, and Bowfin already located there, there was concern that there would not be enough tourist dollars to support a fourth ship.  The societies have to be self-supported.

If you want to see all the requirements and how the application process works, and a copy of the decision on Hoga, you can find it all at http://www.navsea.navy.mil/ndp/

Just so everyone knows, Hoga is NOT going to the Clinton Library on the same river; she'll be on the other side, moored with the WWII submarine Razorback

The Honolulu Star Bulletin has weighted in with the Hawaiian perspective.
