“In the process of gaining our rightful place we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds. Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking it from the cup of bitterness and hatred.” -Martin Luther King Jr., #IHaveaDream

The Department of Defense recognizes January 17, 2022 as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Day. On this day we commemorate and celebrate the legacy of Dr. King's lifetime commitment to equality, justice, and civil rights for all.

The enduring theme "Remember! Celebrate! Act! A Day On, Not A Day Off!" is a call to America to transform Dr. King's legacy into personal action through service. While it is a day of remembrance and celebration, it is also a time to demonstrate our resolve by getting involved and working together to strengthen and embrace the values of community - reinforcing a sense of belonging, a connectedness without boundaries-a commitment to be a part of something greater than ourselves. #MLK #MLKDay

On this day in 1945, Congress formally gave recognition for the Pledge of Allegiance. The Pledge of Allegiance was first published anonymously in 1892 but Francis Bellamy received credit for writing the Pledge of Allegiance later on.

"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation under god, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

Several Little Rock District lakes are accepting discarded Christmas tree for fish cover. If you have any questions regarding this program, contact the Natural Resources Offices at the Mountain Home Project Office at 870-425-3795, Beaver Lake Project Office at 479-636-1210 or Millwood Tri-Lakes Project Office at 870-898-3343.

Complete your gift-giving by donating your discarded Christmas tree for fish cover at several Little Rock District lakes.

To donate, take your old Christmas tree to any of the following locations:

Norfork Lake: Any U.S. Army Corps of Engineers boat ramp

Bull Shoals Lake: Any U.S. Army Corps of Engineers boat ramp

Beaver Lake: Boat ramps at Highway 12 bridge, Monte Ne and Don Roufa

Millwood Lake: Cottonshed Park, White Cliffs, Millwood State Park

Dierks Lake: Jefferson Ridge Park, South ramp

DeQueen Lake: Any U.S. Army Corps of Engineers boat ramp

Gilham Lake: Any U.S. Army Corps of Engineers boat ramp

Please deposit the trees to the side of the ramp, being careful not to block ramp access or parking areas.

All trees should be real, not artificial and must be free of ornaments and tinsel to prevent harm to fish.

The trees will then be available for anyone interested in using them to provide shelter for fish and serve as attractors for recreational fishing. Anyone wanting to use these trees is welcome to pick them up to sink as fish cover, but it must be done with natural rock.

Any unclaimed trees will be sunk by USACE or Arkansas Game and Fish personnel later.

If you have any questions regarding this program, contact the Natural Resources Offices at the Mountain Home Project Office at 870-425-3795, Beaver Lake Project Office at 479-636-1210 or Millwood Tri-Lakes Project Office at 870-898-3343.

On Dec. 16, 1944, with the onset of winter, the German army launched a counteroffensive that was intended to cut through the Allied forces in a manner that would turn the tide of the war in Hitler's favor. The battle that ensued is known historically as the Battle of the Bulge.

During the Battle of the Bulge, the Corps of Engineers quick actions destroyed critical bridges in the path of advancing German forces, slowing and diverting them while Allied forces regrouped.

The courage and fortitude of the American Soldiers was tested against great adversity. Nevertheless, the quality of the American Soldiers response ultimately meant the victory of freedom over tyranny.

Petrochemical corporations are racing to build new, dirty projects - increased fracking, pipelines, oil and gas terminals, and massive plastics plants - from the Permian Basin and across the Gulf Coast. If allowed, this would increase the threat of climate disaster and further pollute the most vulnerable black, indigenous, and low-income communities who have suffered far too long already. Frontline communities across the Gulf South and around the globe are calling on the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Headquarters (USACE) to protect our water and air now by stopping the issue of permits to the dirty facilities. Help us #DefendTheGulf and call on USACE to: Meet and tour frontline communities with local leaders to consult on permitting of dirty projects Conduct a regional Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement to understand the cumulative impacts of pollution to the air, water, wildlife, and land!

This past weekend, we took 14 PAL youth to Lake Whitney for some outdoor adventures, camping and a conservation/wildlife management deer hunt. A BIG thank you to the Lake Whitney U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Southwestern Division & Texas Parks and Wildlife for teaming up to make this such a successful event. Thank you to the many coaches and volunteers who mentor these youth during crossbow practices, teach them the Hunter's Education course and help throughout the weekend - you truly are making a difference in their lives! This year, 11 kids were able to harvest a deer and bring meat home to feed their families! Special shout out to Garrett with the Corp, his team and Monica with Texas Parks and Wildlife - Hunter Education for all the work they put in behind the scenes and for impacting our youth with their knowledge and passion for the outdoors. Thank you Kevin with Blue’s Wounded GAME Recovery for donating your time with your beautiful #BlueLacy tracking dogs. They were amazing! We enjoyed having you all there & thank you for always providing a helping hand! #LifesBetterOutdoors #urbanoutdoors *Warning: some pictures may be too graphic and disturbing to some*

The Galveston District hosted the virtual Summer 2021 Stakeholder Partnering Forum August 10 and 11 in Galveston. Brigadier General Christopher Beck, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Southwestern Division Commander, joined Col. Timothy R. Vail, Galveston District Commander, for the two-day event that focused on "Collaborating for Coastal Resiliency." The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Galveston District conducts semi-annual Stakeholder Partnering Forums with non-federal sponsors, customers and agency partners to collaborate on best practices regarding programs ranging from ecosystem restoration to flood risk management, maintaining and improving Texas coastal navigation systems, and regulatory oversight of U.S. waters at its Galveston headquarters. These events help identify opportunities to better support stakeholder commitments and emerging interests for Planning Studies, Preconstruction, Engineering and Design, Construction, Operations and Maintenance. The forum serves as an opportunity for non-federal sponsors, customers and agency partners from along the Texas coast to network and exchange ideas on ways the Galveston District is able to improve value delivery to the nation across civil works and regulatory business lines.
