companies attended Thursday evening for a meet-and-greet book signing with bestselling war journalist Eric Blehm. A drumline and color guard set the tone for a night all about the dedication and sacrifices of the men and women in our industry who have served in the military. There was nary a dry eye in the house as Blehm told the heroic story of Arkansas-native Adam Brown who turned around his life and rose to the top tier of the Navy, Seal Team Six.

the history books, but we plan to top it next year for the 85th anniversary in Rogers. Mark your calendars now for May 3–5, 2017.
