City officials and Military leaders met Friday to sign covenant and make a commitment to soldiers and their families.

For military members and their families, the support of the community around them is invaluable. It's especially important for families left behind by deployments.

The cities of Fountain and Colorado Springs made a written commitment to the army Friday to be that constant support. City leaders and the El Pomar Foundation signed the agreement Friday at the Penrose House Garden Pavilion. Military leaders also signed, including the Sergeant Major Kenneth Preston and Commanding General of Fort Carson Mark Graham.

They all agreed to work together to support soldiers and their families any way they can.

    The Military Covenant is a gift to the community of Colorado Springs Military Vetarans and their families. As a a US Army Veteran of more than 30 years I would like to discover more about the Military Covenant and how I can assist. Would you please send helpful information to: doyle.mcneil@smdc-cs.army.mil. Thank you.

    As I wrote in an e-mail to the reporter, she mispronounced "El Pomar" - what a shame. It's "El Puh-MAR" and not "El POE-muhr." Mispronunciation discredits the report and we know it's a reporter unfamiliar with the word/name - one who didn't take the time to be sure of correct pronunciation.
