Welcome to Utah Battle Buzz, the official Utah National Guard podcast.
Hosted by the Utah National Guard Public Affairs Office
In this episode, we meet a local hero in the fight against COVID-19, a member of our very own Utah National Guard family.
On the morning of April 16th, 2020, Master Sgt. Dan Harris, a Utah National Guard recruiter, shared a photo of his wife, Eva, on social media. She was standing in the passenger drop-off area of the Salt Lake International Airport, wearing a face mask, an Intermountain Healthcare jacket and jeans, one hand on her luggage. She’s smiling.
The caption read:
"This is my hero, she is the most caring, selfless, genuine, and hard-working person I know. She could not sit on the sideline during this pandemic and not use her enormous nursing skills to help those in need. She volunteered to go right into our country’s COVID-19 epicenter to lend a hand. Her patients are going to be extremely lucky to have her. Our neighborhood lined the streets this morning to send her off because they have all experienced the awesomeness that is my wife. I love you Eva Harris! Thank you for being such a great example to our kids."
