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

Also in this issue are items of recurring interest to veterans across the state including news on employment fairs, VA benefits, and community events. Thank you for your continued engagement and support of veterans and military in Utah.
