     History
    The Cold War came to southwestern Arkansas with the arrival of the 703rd Aircraft Control and Warning Squadron at the airport in 1955; at this time, the airport was rechristened the Texarkana Air Force Station. The 703rd was a mobile radar unit that provided coverage for the Strategic Air Command base near Bossier City, Louisiana, at Barksdale Air Force Base. The thirty-person unit guided inceptor aircraft toward unidentified intruders. As the Cold War eased, the demands for the Air Force Station diminished, and it was inactivated on September 8, 1968. For a time, the air force also provided Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) air traffic control duties.

    During the 1960s and 1970s, improvements were undertaken at the airport. A new passenger terminal building was completed in 1960, and a new FAA control tower was finished. In 1970, the Instrument Landing System was installed, and the U.S. Air Force used the airport to pick up cargo from the Lone Star Ammunition Plant in neighboring Texas.
