TriWest Contributes $75,000 to Agencies Supporting California Guardsmen

- Gift Supports Home Front Needs of Families with Deployed Service Members

SAN DIEGO, Dec. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- TriWest Healthcare Alliance is contributing $75,000 to three agencies, which support California National Guard members and their families -- the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Foundation, the Sergeants Major Association of California Inc. and the California National Guard Teens program. All three support the needs of more than 21,000 California Guard members and their families during times of deployment.

Dave McIntyre, president and CEO at TriWest, will present the check to these agencies at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 13. The presentation will be aboard the cruise ship "The Adventurer Hornblower" prior to departing. The ship is located at the South Broadway Float, 950 North Harbor Drive, between Broadway Pier and Navy Pier in San Diego.

"As members of civilian communities, National Guard families don't have convenient access to the support available at military bases like Miramar, Travis or Camp Pendleton," McIntyre said. "TriWest is making the contribution with the hope that we can help to bridge that gap for families of the California National Guard."

Since 2001, close to 26,000 members of California's National Guard have served at least one tour of duty in the Global War on Terrorism. Many of those troops have been deployed more than once.

Assistant Adjutant General of the California National Guard, Brig. Gen. Mary J. Kight will also attend the event.

"California ranks among the top three National Guard forces in the nation," Brig. Gen. Kight said. "The large number of Service members and numerous deployments place heavy demands on Guard resources. With TriWest's contribution, life will be a bit easier for Guard members and their families. We are very grateful to TriWest for meeting this need."

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

About the Sergeants Major Association of California Inc.

The Sergeants Major Association of California Inc. is a resource tool for California National Guard leaders to provide limited, one time, emergency financial assistance to their Soldiers and Airmen. Originally a resource for the Command Sergeant Major (CSM) and the Chief Master Sergeant (CCMSgt), after Sept. 11 and the subsequent mobilizations and deployments of large numbers of our Soldiers and Airmen, we opened the program to Family Support Contractors (FAC) to enable them to request assistance for the families of California National Guard Soldiers and Airmen.
