Guard families get help

Cheyenne, Wy – TriWest Healthcare Alliance has given $10,000 to the Wyoming National Guard for its Wyoming Family Assistance Fund.
TriWest is a private company that administers the military's
TriCare health care program. The donation to help Guard members
with family emergencies comes as the Wyoming Guard prepares for its
largest deployment in history. More than 1,200 soldiers and airmen
will be headed to the Middle East next year.
Major General Ed Wright is adjutant general of the Wyoming
Guard. He says this is a tough time of year for families with
relatives who are deployed and the fund is a godsend for struggling
families.
