In honor of the life and legacy of General Colin Powell, President Biden has ordered flags to be flown at half-staff immediately until sunset on October 22, 2021.
Governor Asa Hutchinson released the following tribute to the former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and U.S. Secretary of State:
“Our nation has lost a true hero & statesman with the passing of Colin Powell. Secretary Powell dedicated his life to serving our country. My respect for him grew as we both served in the Bush Administration after 9/11. Susan & I are praying for his family in this time of loss.”
