Brent Taylor. The center, which offers a wide range of community-based social and psychological services to Veterans and their families in northern Utah, will now be known as the “Major Brent Taylor Vet Center Outstation.”

Jennie Taylor (pictured above) addressed the gathering of Veterans and local residents with a moving speech that highlighted her husband’s legacy of love and service.
