Pearl Harbor

The General Tommy Franks Leadership Institute and Museum is proud to host “Pearl Harbor,” a special exhibit examining the historical impact of the Japanese attack against the United States. The exhibit will be showcased at the Museum Nov. 17 through Jan. 17, 2018. Among the featured artifacts in the “Pearl Harbor” exhibit is a Domain of Neptune’s Rex Certificate. Prior to World War II, world travel was considered an adventure, and crossing the equator was marked as a major event. This celebrated ritual became known by the U.S. and British navies as Neptunus Rex, evolving into a rite of passage for sailors. The exhibit also features a Shellback certificate for Seaman A.D. Burdette dated Jan. 24, 1921, while aboard the U.S.S. Oklahoma, along with original newspapers, maps, ship models and other items.
