Meet the Public Affairs team

Welcome to our new-and-improved website: a one stop shop for everything Utah National Guard.  It’s been a long time coming and will continue to evolve with an ever-changing communication environment.  If you’re looking for something here and can’t find it, or have any suggestions, please let us know in a quick email. We want to keep making it better.

Since taking on my role as the Utah National Guard State Public Affairs Officer, several people have asked why we still print the Utah Minuteman, especially with recent advances in digital technology.  The answer is simple: because trust matters.  While it is true, more than 70 percent of our population use their smartphones for the majority of their reading and information, we also know the public demands trustworthy sources to that data.
       According to a Kantar poll of 8,000 consumers in the U.S., France, Brazil and the U.K., printed news magazines are the most trusted resource for news, followed by 24/7 TV news, radio bulletins and national newspapers. The print versions of national newspapers were more trusted than the newspapers' websites.
    The Utah Minutemen quarterly publication is a reflection of the UTNG, the premier military organization in the state of Utah.  We earned that reputation through the hard work and sacrifice of our members and veterans.  You deserve something you can trust right here in the pages between your fingers.  And yes, for the 70 percent, this content and more is available here on our website.
    If you have any suggestions or input for the magazine, send us an email or call me directly.
