SANTA FE, N.M., Dec. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- TriWest Healthcare Alliance will present $15,000 to the Character Counts organization, which will help support the needs of more than 4,000 New Mexico National Guard Service members and their families.

Alice Demarais, market vice president for the mountain market at TriWest, will present the check to the Adjutant General of the New Mexico National Guard, Brig. Gen. Kenny C. Montoya, at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 18, at the New Mexico National Guard Headquarters in Santa Fe.

"As members of civilian communities, National Guard families don't always have convenient access to the support available at military bases like Kirtland, Cannon and Holloman," said TriWest President and CEO David J. McIntyre, Jr. "TriWest made the contribution with the hope that we can help to bridge that gap for New Mexico Guard families."

Since 2001, close to 4,000 of the New Mexico National Guard has been mobilized for active duty. Most recently, 300 members of the New Mexico Air National Guard's 150th Fighter Wing were deployed to Iraq.

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

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