RAPID CITY, S.D., Nov. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- TriWest Healthcare Alliance will present $10,000 to Operation Cares, which supports the needs of the more than 4,000 of South Dakota's National Guard members and their families.

Don Brown, market vice president for the central market area at TriWest, will present the check to Steve Doohen, secretary of the Department of Military and Veterans Affairs for South Dakota, at 1 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 3 at Camp Rapid, 2823 West Main Street in Rapid City.

"As members of civilian communities, National Guard families don't have convenient access to the support network available at military bases like Ellsworth," said TriWest President and CEO David J. McIntyre, Jr. "TriWest is making the contribution with the hope that we can help to bridge that gap for South Dakota's Guard families."

Since 2001, more than 3,100 Soldiers and 700 Airmen in South Dakota's National Guard have been mobilized in support of the Global War on Terror.

"TriWest continues to be a steady partner that recognizes the realities of military service and its impact on our families," Doohen said. "We are grateful to TriWest for this contribution, which can help make life easier to bear for Guard members and their families."

Members of Detachment 48, Operational Support Airlift Command, South Dakota Army National Guard at Rapid City were recently notified they will soon deploy for a six-to-12 month tour in support Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan.

TriWest's contribution is part of its "Giving to the Guard" campaign, in which it is providing support to National Guard units within its 21-state west region.
