Why: There is an impending deployment of military personnel from Wyoming.  Deployed personnel and their families are from every community in Wyoming, thus, the effects of this large deployment are far-reaching.  Men, women, children, and related family members will be impacted.  Whether or not you currently see patients/clients who are military, the impact will be felt statewide.  We must all be prepared to assist how we can.
