This project wouldn't be possible without the continued support of the Marriott Library Special Collections, The Marriner S. Eccles Foundation, the University of Utah College of Humanities, and the Fort Douglas Museum. We would especially like to thank Lt. Colonel Hank McIntire of the Utah National Guard Public Affairs Office, and Dr. John Reed, adjunct professor of history at the University of Utah, for their assistance in finding interviewees for the project. Finally, we extend our deepest gratitude to those who willingly shared their stories with us. For complex reasons, many veterans choose to guard their experiences with stoic silence. We thank you for sharing yours.
