Friday at 9 a.m., the company will have a formation at ASU-Mountain Home.  Special invited guests included Brigadier General Larry Haltom, deputy adjutant general of Arkansas; Mountain Home Mayor Ed House, Baxter County Judge Joe Bodenhamer, and Baxter County Sheriff Joe Edmonds.  A community reception at the Mountain Home Armory will follow the ceremony.

A second formation will follow at 2 p.m. at the Searcy County Fairgrounds in Marshall.
