I visited HOLT AgriBusiness this morning for the grand opening of its $4 million facility in Jonesboro, which includes a 15,000 sq. ft. sales and parts building and a 10,000 sq. ft. full-service center. This facility will serve #AR1 agriculture well, and I had the privilege of joining HOLT Agribusiness CEO Peter M. Holt, Arkansas Agriculture Department Secretary Butch Calhoun, and HOLT Agribusiness Jonesboro Regional Operations Manager Bruce Martin following the event. To open the ceremony, U.S. Army Sergeant First Class Dana Bowman (ret.), a former Army Golden Knight who is a double-amputee and a well-known wounded warrior advocate, skydived from 5,000 ft. while draping a 7,500 sq. ft. American flag. It was a poignant way to begin the event, and Sergeant Bowman was kind enough to pose for a picture with me following his jump. Altogether, HOLT and its affiliates employ more than 350 former military members, which amounts to 17 percent of the company’s workforce. Join me in thanking Sergeant Bowman for his service as well as companies like HOLT who employ our men and women who served!

It is deeply disappointing for someone in the Obama Administration to insult the Prime Minister of Israel, one of our closest and most important allies, in such a way that has been reported recently. Our allies deserve respect from administration officials at every level and anything less is entirely unprofessional. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/10/29/top-jewish-leader-calls-on-obama-to-name-apologize-for-and-repudiate-official/
