Arkansas Guard's Adjutant General Announces Retirement

APRIL 24, 2006 - Posted at 8:07 a.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Governor Huckabee says he can sympathize with Major General Don C. Morrow, adjutant general of the Arkansas National Guard, who is forced to retire from the Army by his age.  Huckabee said Saturday when Morrow announced his retirement that it was sort of like term limits for people elected to office.  As Huckabee put it, "I'm getting booted out, too."  Huckabee leaves office at the end of the year after serving the maximum two full elected terms, plus time from the unexpired term of the man he replaced in 1996, Jim Guy Tucker.

Morrow reaches the mandatory retirement age when he turns 64 years old on June 23.  Although Morrow could remain as the state's adjutant general, he would no longer be recognized federally as a two-star U.S. Army general.

Huckabee says he'll appoint a replacement in the next month.
