Michael Erwin – Operations Director

Growing up in Boone County Arkansas on a 600 acre farm, Michael has worked closely with my father Brian Erwin processing timber and clearing land until joining the Marine Corp in 1981.   Michael is a fifth generation Erwin in North Arkansas, the Erwin family has lived in Boone County since 1879 working primarily in the timber industry.  Michael’s great uncles Carl and Dewey Erwin owned “The Erwin Brother’s Timber” operating in the 1930s – 50s which was located at the current location of Ben Eddings Olds & GMC.

Michael began his professional experience by enlisting in the United States Marine Corp in 1981.  He was a true blue Reagan Marine.  He served the USMC by performing Avionics Maintenance on AH1T Cobra gunships and rose to the rank of Sargent in just 2 1/2 years.  It was while serving on the USS Tarawa during a west pac cruise that Michael met Jesus and my Savior and Lord.  Michael loved the Marine Corp but his home of Arkansas seem to be calling me home so I served just 4 years and worked for the United States Postal Service in Harrison Arkansas from 1987 – 1997.
