On July 3rd Mountain America Credit Union CEO and President Sterling Nielsen symbolically presented interactive historical records of service to Utah National Guard Brigadier General Scott Harrison, Non Commissioned Officer of the Year Staff Sergeant Dennis Boorman and Soldier of the Year Specialist Guy Mellor.

'Remember My Service' is a program created by StoryRock Electronic Publishing that helps Military units create a historic record and includes training, support records and photos gathered by Military Historians and Public Affairs Officers for each individual soldier.
This is the culmination of an effort that began three years ago when President of StoryRock and former Miss America Sharlene Hawkes was approached by the Army Reserve to help gather each Utah National Guard Soldier's post 9/11 historical record.
Thanks to a generous donation from Mountain America Credit Union, every one of the more than 6,500 Soldiers and Airman of the Utah National Guard will be presented with their historical record so that they can share their legacy with family, friends and future generations. The Utah National Guard is the first command in the nation to honor their Soldiers and Airman in this way.
After making the historic presentation CEO and President of Mountain America Credit Union Sterling Neilsen said 'Our Military men and women do such a fantastic job, their families sacrifice so much. We just want to say Thank You and that we are happy to be a part of this'
