January Report from 1st Battalion, Company
J-Arkansas Mechanized Cavalry
Greetings and Salutations to the Mech Cav Nation from the Great State of Arkansas.
The end of November and the month of December have been a very busy month here in Arkansas.
On November 24th the James H. Berry SCV Camp 468 and its members in Co. J participated in the Rodeo of
the Ozarks Christmas Parade with two floats and a trio of motorcycles. The floats included Santa on a Harley
on one and a Confederate encampment with men in period dress on the other.
We also had camp banners and of course a large array of Confederate flags.
Our Confederate Battle Flag caused a storm of controversy after the float was videotaped by a local antifa operative
who tried to cause trouble by calling it a banner of hate and genocide. The video was picked up by local news first,
then went statewide, and was even seen on Yahoo news. Also numerous local newspapers ran stories about
the float and the flags. The negative publicity was countered by our State Division Commander who was interviewed
by several local media outlets. Truly
an interesting end of the month here in NW Arkansas.
The first weekend of December was a busy one. Members of 1-J were active in several events including the NWA Toy Run
and the reenactment of the Battle of Prairie Grove. A half a dozen riders gathered in Fayetteville, AR to stage for the police
escorted ride to Greenland, AR where Mr. and Mrs Claus were waiting to hand out gifts to local kids in Washington County.
After the Toy Run 1-J saddled up to ride over to Prairie Grove Battlefield State Park to watch our own Tim Beck participate
in the annual staging of the 1862 Battle of Prairie Grove. Tim is an authentic campaigner who is a member of the 22nd Arkansas
Infantry organization, as well as the
At the monthly meeting of the James H. Berry Camp 468 on Dec. 11th , 2nd Lt. Jason Peck presented upper and lower
rockers to Troopers Bryce McClain and Porky
Young for completing their required rides and events. Congratulations!
The following weekend Sgt Major Duste was in attendance representing 1-J at the escort ride for Wreaths Across America.
Over 125 bikes and riders accompanied three tractor trailer loads of wreaths to the Fayetteville National Cemetery for the annual event
honoring those who served our great Nation.
To end the month members of 1-J and Camp 468, in the true spirit of Christmas, gathered together for a shopping excursion
to provide clothing and gifts to a single mother and her two young boys who were in need, guaranteeing that family would have a Merry Christmas
with gifts under the tree.
In closing we at Company J would like to wish all of our Mechanized Cavalry Brothers around the country a Blessed and Merry Christmas and
a safe and Happy New Year.
Till next time.....
Live the Charge
