Hometown Heroes Serving Abroad: Seaman Cody Hampton Aboard the USS Ronald Reagan
Townsquare Media - Texarkana salutes our hometown heroes wherever they may serve. This guy, Seaman Cody Hampton, is from Prescott, Arkansas. Here he is working his hair-cutting magic on fellow sailors and aviators. You know those aviators like to keep it high and tight to reduce drag, or that's what I hear. Salute!

We love it when we get the chance to feature our local heroes doing everyday jobs in the military. Can you imagine all of the everyday-type jobs there must be on a floating city of 5000'ish sailors like the USS Ronald Reagan?
Join the Navy and see the world, or at least all the wet parts anyway. Go Navy!
