Honoring Utah’s Fallen
The Military & Veteran Counseling Center invited you to show your appreciation for those who paid the ultimate sacrifice in laying down their life for our country.
May 27th, 2016 Over 500 people attended
Many came to support the Gold Star families (families of the fallen) and show respect for those who sacrificed for our freedom in an exclusive memorial service. Families participated in the assembly of Utah’s first monument consisting of 752 “dog tags” engraved with the names of every fallen Utah service member from the Korean conflict to present. They each signed the monument to connect them with their lost family member.
Speakers included Adjutant General, Maj Gen Burton and Director and trauma therapist Melanie Squire.
