Community covenant with Fort Carson being renewed

El Pomar Foundation will host the signing of a second Army Community Covenant of Fort Carson today at 3 p.m. at the Garden Pavilion at Penrose House.

The Army Community Covenant Program began in 2007 as a means to show soldiers that their communities support their efforts throughout the world. The program is designed to foster and sustain effective state and local community partnerships with the Army to improve the quality of life for soldiers and their families, both at their current duty stations and as they transfer to other states.

“This is a community led initiative to show the community’s continued support to the men and women in uniform,” said Terrance McWilliams, director of military support for the foundation.

It is a formal commitment by state and local communities to soldiers and families of the Army – active, Guard and Reserve.
