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.
