May 2017 Newsletter

The focus of the May 2017 Newsletter is Military Affairs.

In Utah, we are fortunate to have first-class installations, military organizations, and community support groups that all contribute to our national security responsibilities. Furthermore, any of these organizations have contributed articles, events, accomplishments, points of contact and calendar items.

No Doubt you will find this issue interesting and informative. As veterans, we all started wearing the uniform, and we are proud of those that continue to serve from our state. Deployments remain a constant for both our active and reserve component service members, and we will never forget those sacrifices as well as those who went before.

Also, in this issue are items of recurring interest to veterans across the state include news on employment fairs, VA Choice Program update, VA benefits, and community events. Finally, thank you for reading and your continuing engagement and support of veterans and military in Utah.
