Meet the Public Affairs team

As we work together to get through a national crisis during these unprecedented times, communication is more important than ever. The Utah National Guard's Public Affairs Office is committed to ensuring timely and relevant information is available for our service members, their families, employers and our local communities.

The Utah National Guard's public website, ut.ng.mil, has quickly become a one-stop online resource. During the past quarter, we added a significant amount of information, videos, workouts and many other resources. We remain committed to getting you the most important and relevant information.

This past month, we opened up another channel to provide you information. Utah National Guard’s very own podcast, “Battle Buzz.” Our first episode aired April 27, 2020, and is titled “Healthcare Hero.” This episode features a Guard family member who deployed to New York City as a nurse to support the fight against COVID-19. The podcast can be found here or on Spotify. Listen to this episode.

What do you want to hear from future episodes? We encourage your feedback or recommendations for the podcast.

The Utah National Guard is a premiere organization with amazing Soldiers, Airmen and families. We look for creative ways of telling the Guard’s story and are here to support you.

Please feel free to contact our office at ng.ut.utarng.list.pao@mail.mil; or 801-432-4407
