Governor Herbert is continuing a 65-year tradition by hosting a Governor's Day salute to soldiers in the Utah National Guard.

The governor used Saturday's event at Camp Williams to remind those in the audience that they probably meet members of the Guard every day.

Herbert also thanked Guard members and their families for their service to Utah and the United States.

The event featured flyovers, vehicle demonstrations and a parade by more than seven-thousand troops.

Major General Jeff Burton of the Utah National Guard said the event means a lot to the state's soldiers.
