Frankfort, KY: Governor Fletcher announced today the appointment of Murray resident Tara Dennison to the Kentucky Commission on Military Affairs.
Dennison attended Murray State University, and currently serves as an advisor to the Alpha Gamma Delta chapter at MSU. Dennison also serves as a member of the Murray City Schools Foundation. Her son, Second Lieutenant Bryan Dennison, is scheduled for deployment in Iraq with his unit, A Battery, 1st Battalion, 41st Field Artillery Regiment, as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Bryan is a graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York.
In making the appointment, Governor Fletcher stated, “No one has more at stake with today's military than the parents of those brave service men and women who are standing in harm’s way to defend our country. I am proud to know the Dennison family and Tara Dennison will represent the thousands of parents across the Commonwealth with distinction in this important role.”
"Tara Dennison is exactly the kind of person we need on this Commission. She is committed to enhancing the presence of our military in the Commonwealth. The Governor made an excellent choice," said Major General Donald Storm, Adjutant General of the Commonwealth.
The Kentucky Commission on Military Affairs is located in the Office of the Governor and works closely with the Governor's Cabinet on significant military issues. Governor Fletcher looks to the Commission to protect existing military infrastructure and promote new military missions and economic opportunities for Kentucky and its citizens, a $5.2 billion dollar industry.
