A big thank you to everyone in the Arkansas delegation for attending the 137th NGAUS Conference and Exhibition in Nashville, Tennessee, in September. Check out the Photo Gallery on this website for pictures of some of the events and activities that took place.
We hope everyone had an enjoyable and educational experience and that it is one you will want to continue in coming years. Unfortunately, I was unable to attend this year .... I know I missed a great time. Some inconveniences are to be expected, and the NGAA staff worked hard to eliminate as many of those as possible.
We are extremely pleased and proud that Congressman Steve Womack was chosen to receive NGAUS's most prestigious award, the Harry S. Truman Award for Distinguished Service in Support of National Defense. And, we congratulate Arkansas award recipient Major Mike Culley who was awarded the Meritorious Service Award; Captains Eric Scarbrough and Seth Connell who received the Theodore Roosevelt Leadership Award for Company Grade Officers; and CW2 Steve Rushin who was presented with the Eagle Rising Award for Warrant Officers.
I hope everyone made good use of the NGAA hospitality suite to enjoy refreshments, breakfasts, and fellowship throughout the conference. We welcome your suggestions for improvement to this effort and invite you to contact us at the NGAA office with your ideas. Thank you again for being part of one of the largest Arkansas delegations ever sent to a NGAUS Conference. I hope we will have as many, if not more, at the 138th NGAUS Conference and Exhibition next year in Baltimore, Maryland. Mark your calendars and keep September 9-12, 2016, available!
