Arkansas is one of two locations – the other being Honolulu, Hawaii – with ships present at both the beginning and end of World War Two. Per the US Department of Veterans Affairs, of the millions who served, there are 119,550 veterans of the Second World War alive today. Around 1,144 World War II veterans live in Arkansas.
